Bolivia

From the heights of the Andes to the flatland Llanos Region, Bolivia is a subtle country with wonderful people and much culture to witness. Bolivia is an archaeologist’s dream, as the home to many artifacts and lost cities that have only recently been given back to us by the Andes, the sands of the desert, and time. History hides in Bolivia, which is why you should include it on your must-see list:

Capital City: Sucre

Language: Spanish

Currency: Bolivian Boliviano (BOB). BOB is currently 7 for 1 USD. Although you can use U.S. dollars in larger cities and stores throughout Bolivia, you will need BOB when you travel into the smaller towns and remote regions, which is common among travelers here. When you exchange money, ask for a mix of larger bills and smaller coins because many village stores in Bolivia will not accept large denominations.

Power Adapter: In Bolivia the power sockets are of type A and C. The standard voltage is 115 / 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.

Crime & Safety: Despite being among the poorest countries in the region, Bolivia has far lower levels of theft and violent crime than in neighboring Peru and Brazil. Most crime that is committed is non-violent, and considered along the lines of opportunistic theft. As with any country that is considered poorer than those of the world’s leading economies, the primary rule of thumb is to not stand out. Don’t weary flashy jewelry, carry cash delicately and handle it inconspicuously.

Emergency Number: 999
