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.
