Top Bolivia


Uyuni itself is fairly safe, provided that you use your common sense, just as in any other part of Bolivia. The usual scams apply, including opportunistic activities such as pickpocketing, so take care of your stuff at all times. Altitude sickness is a risk here--as in other parts of Bolivia, be on the look out for signs of this. Do remember to take warm clothes with you. Uyuni and the Salar can get bitterly cold.
