Why Get AMPED: Bolivia is a deep dive into an ancient world with over 36 indigenous cultures that retained their own languages and customs after enduring over 2000 years of occupation.
The lack of modernity and landlocked topography contribute to the country’s unassuming charm and appeal. While there are no sandy beaches, Bolivia does have its share of breathtaking natural wonders and historic landmarks in Lake Titicaca, The White City (Sucre), the many salt flats, and lush Amazon jungle—and without the bustling tourists.
Because Bolivians love to celebrate, festivals and parades are an almost daily spectacle. It is these distinctions that make Bolivia the ideal host country if you’re searching for a one of a kind immersive experience.
