    The thing to remember about Bolivia is that summers are wet and winters are dry. Most people come in the winter (June to September), though remember that lots of South Americans and Europeans are traveling during this period too, so expect large crowds.

    Regarding safety and health issues, altitude sickness is a biggie there as well as tropical diseases like malaria, dengue and yellow fever so get your shots and immunizations in order before traveling!

    As far as visas, you won't need one if you're staying less than 30 days, so be sure not to overstay this period or risk a fine.
