Bolivian Visa Requirements to Walk With Mountain Lions

November 13th, 2010
Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with a mountain lion? How about a jaguar? Volunteer at Bolivia's Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY), and you can make friends with monkeys, big cats, parrots and other exotic animals. CIWY is an organization that rescues wild animals from the black market. Often, these animals have been abused or neglected. While many of the smaller animals are allowed to live free in one of the organizations 3 parks, the jaguars, pumas and ocelots cannot be released. Instead, CIWY keeps them caged when they are unsupervised, but allows them to spend most of the day walking through trails in the jungle, accompanied by volunteers. That's where you come in. As a volunteer, you're usually assigned one specific animal to work with for the duration of your st


Bolivian Visa Requirements to See the Last Refuge of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

August 5th, 2010
Wilder even than the Wild West, at the turn of the 20th century Bolivia was one of the best places in the world to be an outlaw. When famous bank robbers Robert LeRoy Parker (aka Butch Cassidy) and Harry Alonzo Longabaugh (aka "The Sundance Kid") needed a place to hide from the law, it's no surprise that that's where they headed. Unfortunately, whether it was because the money ran out or just because they craved the adrenaline rush of pulling off a successful heist, the two criminals simply couldn't stop stealing-and even in turn-of-the-century Bolivia, a couple of gringos with a penchant for robbing banks stuck out like a sore thumb. After they robbed a mule train carrying payroll for the Aramayo Franke and Cia Silver Mine, Butch and the Sundance Kid aroused the suspicions of a loca


Get a Bolivian Visa to Visit El Fuerte de Samaipata

June 20th, 2010
Over 1,000 years ago, a group called the Chane lived in the Andes Mountains, in what is now Bolivia.  They lived in densely populated villages, farmed and created some rather extraordinary rock art.  Most of the villages are long gone, but the rock art is still visible today at El Fuerte de Samaipata, this week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site. To the Chane, El Fuerte de Samaipata was a religious site. It was destroyed when a rival group, the Guarani, conquered the Chane. The Spanish also built a settlement there, and the Incas, who allied with the Chane against the Guarani, also had a settlement nearby. So, when you visit El Fuerte de Samaipata you can actually see architectural ruins from all three cultures. However, it's the Chane rock art that really steals the show. On a


Bolivian Visa Requirements to Visit Salar de Uyuni

May 23rd, 2010
Located in Bolivia, the Salar de Uyuni is the largest salt flat in the world. Stretching for 4,086 square miles, the landform is virtually flat, save for a few "islands" created by the tops of old volcanoes. As the name suggests, the surface of the salt flat is made entirely of a crust of salt. Underneath the salt is a pool of brine, containing possibly the world's largest reserves of lithium. The Salar de Uyuni has to be seen to be believed. Describing the  a trip to the Salar de Uyuni for BootsnAll, Christian Celind writes “A picture is worth a thousand words” doesn’t even apply here. How do you explain an optical illusion in words?" You might think that a salt flat this big would be barren, utterly devoid of life. For the most part, you'd be correct, but some of the isl
