Traveling with Children in Bolivia

    As in all Latin American cultures, family is the core of Bolivian society, and children are smiled upon. Bolivia is generally a safe country, so as long as you follow basic safety practices and keep your children with you, you shouldn't have safety concerns. Consider your children's health before you take them to Bolivia, though, because altitude sickness can hit many. If your children are particularly prone to illness or simply don't deal well with being sick, you might want to reconsider taking them to Bolivia's highlands. Explain all the basic social etiquette to your children, particularly about meals, so that they won't offend anyone. Bolivians will find it charming if you teach your kids how to say a few polite phrases in Spanish. There are often discounts offered for young children, so always ask if there is a children's discount, whether you are riding public transportation, checking into a hotel, etc.
