Home to several indigenous
groups who have maintained their languages and culture from
pre-Inca times, Bolivia also boasts 21 national parks and
sanctuaries that will ensure that visitors may continue to
experience the country’s natural wealth and diversity
for years to come. Lake Titicaca is the best known attraction
in Bolivia, but the capital La Paz, and the cities of Santa
Cruz, Cochabamba, Ouro and the colonial jewel of Sucre, all
offer the traveler a different experience. One of the county’s
most interesting regions is the least known, the Amazon. Here
in protected areas such as Madidi, one may experience the
Amazon forests and rivers unspoiled by industry and development.
The Chalalan Eco Lodge is a good example of a sustainable
tourism project with limited effect on the natural environment,
but that offers an unique experience for visitors and economic
support for the local community.
In addition to a rich history, abundant natural attractions,
many people recognize the resource that makes Bolivia a great
holiday destination is its people, whose ready smiles, and
easy manner bid guests welcome everywhere.
