Bolivia: What You Need to Know

As I traveled to Bolivia, I began to write about some of our cultural differences. When we decide to travel, we leave our cultural background to discover a new one. This involves learning a minimum about the local customs in order to avoid mistakes. Of course, this is what I feel and it is purely subjective even if I think some information might be useful if you come to Bolivia. The country is very diverse with marked differences between regions. The social interactions that one can have with the Bolivians will highly depend on where you are and who you […]Read More »

A show for all my senses between the mixture of hundreds of shades of green, the smell of the earth, moist, and the sound of the secret life of the many tropical species. When I got to  Riberalta, a small urbanized city, I was amazed by the natural diversity. I saw smiles, fabulous animals and great landscapes! But this idyllic image has been somewhat a shock to […]Read More »

I work as a trainee in Sustainable Bolivia. I have to promote and develop sustainable tourism in Riberalta as well as in its region. A real daily challenge in this region where there is so much to see or do but only if you really want it (and act about it!). All the volunteers in SB recently had the chance to discover one of the most famous spots in Riberalta, Lake Tumichucua. Indeed, it’s only been two weeks since I arrived and many people asked me: You didn’t go to Tumi? Well, let’s go for the discovery of this place […]Read More »

Riberalta: Traveling off the beaten track, by Chloé

Bolivia is starting to be popular destination, especially known for the Salar of Uyni, a salt desert changing according to the weather. It is one of the must-see attractions, just like Titicaca Lake, a huge lake with wildlife & ruins of Incas.
