Bolivia International Boat Travel

Bolivia and Peru Boat Crossings

For adventurous and well-heeled travelers, it is possible to enter and exit Bolivia by boat. The most popular route is between the Lake Titicaca shore towns of Puno, in Peru, and Copacabana. Tour agencies in both towns can book boat trips between the two towns, with stops at some of the Lake Titicaca islands. You should ask about border-crossing procedures when you book your tour.

There are also several crossings in the Amazon Basin. It is technically possible to travel by river between Riberalta and Puerto Maldonado, in Peru. The border formalities can be handled at Puerto Heath, but it can take a long time to find boats that will take you the whole way.

Bolivia and Brazil Boat Crossings

There are two crossings between Brazil and Bolivia, as well: from Guajara-Mirim, Brazil to Guayaramerín, Bolivia and from Brasileia, Brazil to Cobija, Bolivia. In both cases, you will have to get an exit stamp from immigration before boarding the boat and will then have to go to the immigration office at your destination for the entry stamp once you've arrived.
