Cochabamba, Copacabana, Potosi, Santa Cruz, Sucre.


The only reason to travel to Cochabamba is to transit between La Paz and Sucre.


The capital of Bolivia, almost in name only, is in the south of the country; south-east of La Paz; where government business is carried out.

The supreme court is located in Sucre as is San Francisco Xavier University; one of the oldest higher education establishments in South America.

Founded as Chuquisaca in 1538, the city was renamed in honour of the first Bolivian president, Antonio Jose de Sucre, in 1840.

Santa Cruz

You'll probably pass through Santa Cruz if you're heading for Brazil or Argentina.


Potosi is one of the highest communities in the world, and the place to go to if you want to visit Bolivian tin mines.

It gets mighty cold up here, so wrap up warm.
