  • La Paz

Tourist can stay in Bolivia any time of the year. Because a great deal of Bolivia is located on the Altiplano, which is above 10,000 ft, weather is largely affected by elevation. In the moorland, the dry season stretches from May to October and this is the time when most of the travelers visit. Conversely, this is also the coldest time of year. At sundown temperatures can be cold any time of the year; they may drop well under freezing at the crest of the dry season in June, July and August. Shoulder seasons, April through June or September through November, will have warmer temperatures and yet be prone to have mild rains so these can be a nice time to visit as well.

In the Amazon, temperatures are normally warmer, they average 80s-90s all year, however, frosts are uncommon. The lowland regions also have alleged "dry" and "wet" season that are during the same months as the highlands. Then again, the dry season brings numerous showers and the wet season has periods of sunshine so nothing is definite.
