Best Time To Travel To Bolivia

We suggest visiting Bolivia anytime from May to October due to it being the dry season and shoulder season before and after the wet season. In Bolivia, one can find mountains, the Amazonian rainforest, and huge salt flats. During the dry season, the sun shines and the skies are blue; however, this is the country’s winter and temperatures in the salt flats can dip below freezing at night, as well as in the mountains. The Amazon is a pleasant temperature and with minimal rain.

The dry season is often preferred to travel during in Bolivia however, when the salt flats flood from the excess rain during the wet season, it offers an amazing mirror effect. Take your chances for the picture-perfect Salar de Uyuni, but keep in mind the country’s transport and infrastructure may be canceled, flooded, or blocked by landslides. Maybe plan your trip around Carnival or Semana Santa (Holy Week).

 

  • Dry Season: June to September
  • Wet Season: November to March
