Bolivia And Local Cultural

Holidays in Bolivia usually include a visit to Potosi, the highest City in the World. Its climates and temperatures are some of the most extreme and its landscapes too. The country, as a whole, has a sort of rustic, dry feel, but as your holidays in Bolivia takes you nearer the equator you also have the tropics, which are filled with thick greenery and fertility.Bolivia is like two countries in one, both physically and culturally. The differences are so noticeable it’s just not possible to describe the country as a whole.

Many foreigners enjoy the comfortable moderate climate of Cochabamba (population 600,000), which is most often compared to Cuenca, Ecuador in terms of altitude, climate, architecture, and culture.

If we were to summarize the main ingredients used by the Bolivians in their food, we would say potatoes, corn, pork, rice, trout, beef and a great variety of sauces. And adding to these ingredients, plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, and the knowledge of what they inherited and what was brought new by the immigrations.To volunteer abroad in Bolivia is to spend your holidays in a productive way, and you will not only be helping others but improving yourself and your outlook on life.
