Altitude

Soroche, or mountain sickness, is present throughout the Andean region; it must be taken into account during a stay in the Andes. The first days at altitude are used to acclimatize: do not hesitate to live a little in slow motion. If you walk faster than the local population ... slow down!

Money

Since its change in 1987, the national currency is Boliviano, indicated by the abbreviation Bs, sometimes still called by its old peso name. You will find banks or exchange offices in La Paz but once out of tourist areas, it is more complicated to change your euros or dollars. It is therefore important to anticipate all the more that, even if there are ATMs, payment by credit card is still marginal in Bolivia.

Security

Bolivia is a reasonably safe country where robbery are infrequent and attacks are rare. However, it is recommended to pay attention, especially in the tourist areas of La Paz or Copacabana on the banks of the Titicaca or in cybercafés, buses, bus and train stations where pickpocketing is frequent.

Health

We strongly recommend to consult a specialized health-travel clinic in order to have the advice of qualified doctors in the field of health abroad. But to avoid digestive problems, it is first of all necessary to pay attention to water and prefer filtered or bottled water.
