Bolivia

Bolivia may be one of the poorest countries in South America, but its cultural wealth, the mindblowing Andean landscapes and the remnants of mysterious ancient civilisations make it a rich and exciting destination for those looking for more than postcards. This landlocked country is practically the Tibet of the Americas - the highest and most isolated of Latin American republics. It is also the most indigenous country on the continent, with more than 50% of the population maintaining traditional values and beliefs. History abounds in such wonders as the ancient ceremonial site of Tiahuanaco; the legendary mines of Potosí; the ornate Jesuit missions of the eastern lowlands; and the vestiges of Inca culture set against the dramatic backdrop of the Andes. Bolivia has certainly had a turbulent history, but now it's one of South America's most peaceful and welcoming destinations.
