Cultural Information for the Traveler

Destination: Bolivia!

Featured country of the week

Bolivia is one of the most ethnically diverse countries in all of the Americas as the population is primarily Aymara or Quechua, two indigenous groups of people that have dominated the region for centuries. Additionally, many of the people also have some European in them, but it is these indigenous groups that dominate the country culturally, linguistically, and today also politically.

The country's top sights reflect this diversity as Lake Titicaca and its reed housing and boats are an impressive look into Aymaran culture while the former silver mines in Sucre display Spanish colonization and the architecture left behind from this wealth. La Paz displays the modern side of the country, perhaps the only truly modern city in the country.

Start your trip here, see Pictures of Bolivia, or learn more about the country's Geography & Weather, History & Architecture, Food & Drinks, or Culture & Identity.
