Bolivian Visa Requirements to Test Your Luck on the “Death Road”

May 8th, 2010
Are you an adrenaline junkie? Is cheating death the only thing that makes you feel alive? Here's the perfect vacation for you: Mountain biking down Bolivia's "Death Road." Technically, the road in question is called the "Yungas Road" because it connects Bolivia's northern Yungas rainforest with the capital city of La Paz. However, so many people have died along the road that locals and foreigners alike refer to it as "El Camino de la Muerte," which is Spanish for "the road of death." What makes Bolivia's "death road" so dangerous? First of all, starting from a height of almost 5 kilometers up in the air, it plunges more than 3.6 kilometers in the space of about 70 kilometers.  The switchbacks are brutally sharp, and there are no guardrails to protect you.  As many as 200 people d

Bolivian Visa Requirements to Visit The Ancient City of Tiwanaku

March 21st, 2010
This week's UNESCO World Heritage Site is located in Bolivia. Once upon a time (more precisely, from between 300 to 1000 AD), the city of Tiwanaku was the center of a great empire. According to Wikipedia, the people that lived there used an ingenious form of agriculture called "suka kollus," growing crops in raised fields separated by flooded canals. The canals kept the crops irrigated during the hot days and protected them against freezing during the cold nights. Supported by these agricultural techniques, the city grew to 6.5 square kilometers, and had between 15,000 - 30,000 inhabitants when it was at its largest point. Tiwanaku also brought other cities under its leadership, sometimes through trade and treaties, sometimes by force. The city expanded its territory to include parts

October 18th, 2009
Lake Titicaca is the largest lake in South America, as well as one of the region's prime tourist attractions. The lake, located on the border between Peru and Bolivia,  has several unique characteristics that make it worth visiting. First, it is located high in the Andes Mountains, 12,500 ft above sea level.  The blue of the lake contrasted with the white, snow-capped peaks of the mountains makes for stunning scenery indeed! Second, the lake and the surrounding areas are home to native people with a unique and interesting culture. For example, some natives live on the lake on artificial islands made of reeds, called uros. The uros  must be rebuilt constantly with fresh reeds to replace the reeds on the bottom as they decompose into the lake. On the island on Amanti, you can stay f
