should we skip Bolivia in Febuary.

Jump to last reply

We leave for South America in exactly 3 weeks and will start in Chile, then Argentina and had planned on going through Bolivia to Lake Titicaca and then Cusco.
We will be traveling by bus most likely.

I know it will be the rainy season but some reports say that travel in Bolivia is almost impossible in Feb/March due to heavy rains and impassable roads. Rain is okay, torrential rain and roads washed out was not in the plan however.

Changing our time is not possible. We arrive in BA Argentina Feb 01 and plan to fly to Quito early March and thought we would fly from Cusco to Quito as it is very inexpensive, and my husband has never been there before. That flight has not been booked yet. We have only booked our main flights, Vancouver to Santiago on Jan 2, Quito to Vancouver April 2.

Bolivia and Peru were the two we narrowed it down to, but we can change if need be.
What do you think? Has anyone been there in Feb before? Thanks for any help.
