Top Reasons to Go
Water, water everywhere. Carnival in Oruro may seem like the biggest frat-house water fight in the world, but it's also a stunning realization of Bolivian folklore and dance.
Flipper of the Forest. Yes, friends, that was a pink dolphin you just saw in the Beni River—and no, you didn't have too much chicha to drink. The Amazonian basin is home to an astonishing array of wildlife, including caimans, Amazonian catfish the size of Volkswagens, sloths, jaguars, and the famed pink dolphins.
No salt added. The Salar de Uyuni, the giant salt desert that borders Chile, is an impressive, barren, and unique landscape.
On top of the world. The Isla de Sol, sitting pretty in the middle of Lake Titicaca, not only has the best views of the mountains of the Royal Range and the sacred waters of the lake itself, but it also has sparkling white beaches.
