Top Bolivia


Senior travelers to Bolivia will usually be surprised with the level of respect and consideration they will be greeted with. Older citizens are greatly respected in Bolivia; most live with their children. Nursing homes and care facilities are rare and considered a shameful and embarrassing gringo practice.

Travelers over 65, the so-called tercer edad (third age), are eligible to discounts throughout the country on airplanes, buses, trains and tourist attractions such as national parks and museums. Carry your ID and be sure to ask.

Since Bolivia is a country whose cities are mainly located at very high altitudes, some older travelers might find this to be more challenging than their younger counterparts find it. If you have heart or respiratory conditions, consult your doctor before traveling.

Here are some related tips to help plan your trip to Bolivia: Climbing, Uyuni Services, Bolivia Internet Access, WiFi and Internet Cafes, Bolivian Dress, Amazon Basin History, Spanish Schools in Bolivia, Safety, Safety, Disabled Travelers in Bolivia and Traveler's Checks in Bolivia.
