We are thinking about leaving Bolivia towards Salta in Argentina after a visit to the salars.
I found that the "wara wara" express leaves at 2.20 am from Uyuni to Villazon where we should have 2 hrs to catch a bus on the Argentine side for onward travel to Salta. With usual border formalities one day before christmas eve is this a reasonable connection?
Also is it enough to buy train tickets one day in advance in Uyuni, or should we try to get tickets in advance through a travel agency…
i need your help and advice. i want to see Salar Uyuni + lagoons + heysers. but, it do not want to spend 3 days.
what i want is approximately the below.
it skips the 'usual' day 1 routine - starting late, seeing trains etc.
do you think it will be possible to do with any of agancies? anybody tried something similar (i am sure i am not the only one)...any advise on how to make it happen? thanks a lot!!!!
Day 1: start very early - Sunrise in the middle of Salar and visit the below
Hello I will be traveling from La Paz to Rio De Janeiro. I want to do it as cheap as possible so Im sure it will be buses and trains. I have been advised to go via Santa Cruz and into Corumba, Brazil. Is this the only route? Would anyone suggest another route I could take. Time is not an issue but I would like to take the quickest route possible into Brazil. If the Santa Cruz-Corumba is my best option, can anyone suggest some interesting things to see along the way?

Hello everyone. I am a USA Citizen and I will be flying from the USA to La Paz towards the end of December. I am flying on a one way ticket. I've been told I will not be required to prove return travel when I purchase my Visa upon arrival..Just confirming that this is true? Will I need any other documents other than a passport when I purchase my Visa at the airport? Thanks in advance for any advice :)
I will have 22 full days in Bolivia, and I was wondering if I could comfortably fit in 4-5 days of trekking in some high areas, the Salar the Uyuni tour, Potosí and Santa Cruz (this is not strictly necessary).
I would rather use buses than flying.
And I am thinking of a 50 US daily budget.
No problems with language, as I speak spanish fluently.
We are planning to start and end the trip in Santa Cruz. Not into trekking or climbing but would like to be able to get around Bolivia by bus. Can give the Amazon Basin a miss. Advice please.
Hello everyone, I was hoping for some information about the boat trip from Trinidad to Guaramerín. Has anyone here done the tour, and was it easy or hard to negotiate your way into a cargo boat ? Did you feel the boat trip was worth all the travelling to get to and from trinidad/Guaramerín ? And how was access to food and water while on board ?
Actau ally the more information you could reply would be better :) thanks , Robin
'Well that's a very random question', I hear you say.
Is this guy so ridiculously British that he needs his G&T for high tea every day while commenting on the weather and singing God Save the Queen??
No, serious question!! I want to take something 'British' as a present for my mate in Bolivia, I'm thinking a bottle of gin and wondering if I need to pack the tonic or can I buy it out there and pack something more useful in my rucksack?
Appreciate any help!
Does anyone know the legality of San pedro in Bolivia, chile and Peru? Someone gave me some while in cusco but I don't know if it's a good idea to take it into Bolivia when I go next week. Does Bolivian or Chilean customs check bags when you cross?
