Why you Should Travel to Bolivia

 

La Paz, at over 12,000 feet, is the highest capital city in the world. Bolivia’s landscape varies from rugged Andean peaks to tropical rainforests in the Amazon Basin. The famous ‘El Chorro’ trail stretches from the snow-capped High Andes through several ecosystems and concludes in the steamy, humid Yungas…it is a once-in-a-lifetime-experience…one where you can witness all that Bolivia has to offer. Property is affordable, too–a 30,000-acre ranch with 11 miles of navigable river costs just $500,000, for example. The food is great quality and rustic. The beautiful colonial cities of Sucre and Potosí are not to be missed. And don’t forget to visit Lake Titicaca, in the Andes–the largest lake in South America.

Trek Bolivia: A Machu Picchu Alternative

Trek Bolivia: A Machu Picchu Alternative

Forget the trek to Machu Picchu, Peru. While the pre-Columbian city is truly a work of art, it is difficult not to feel disappointed after hiking for four days only to find a hoard of tourists who got to the top in an hour by train. Instead of following the masses, why not venture off the beaten path and hike Bolivia’s El Choro Trail?

How to Enjoy an Early Retirement

How to Enjoy an Early Retirement

He tried to cajole and otherwise persuade her, to no avail. “Senor, I can’t let you buy all my apples. If I sell out now I won’t have anything to do for the rest of the day.”

Clarification Causes Confusion

In May it was announced that visitors to Panama entering on a tourist visa would no longer be granted a 90-day stay (extendable for another 90 days). Instead, immigration officials said, those entering on a tourist visa would be granted just 30 days-extendable up to 60 additional days. This month, rumors began circulating that the […]
