Bolivia Travel Information


Bolivia Flag The Plurinational State of Bolivia (Spanish: Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia) is a landlocked country in South America. It shares land borders with Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Peru.

As of 2010, the population of Bolivia was estimated to be 10,902,778.

Bolivia has two capitals, both of which are known for their high elevations:
  • Sucre is the constitutional capital, and is at an altitude of 9,000 feet (2,750 meters). As of 2006, the city had a population of 247,300.

  • La Paz is the seat of government, and is the highest capital city in the world. The center of the city is at an elevation of 12,007 feet (3,660 meters) above sea level. However, the center of the city is surrounded by still higher hills and mountains, and the city has hence grown to incorporate even higher elevations. As of 2008, La Paz had a population of 877,363, but is part of a combined metropolitan area which also incorporates the nearby cities of El Alto and Viacha, and which all together have a combined metropolitan population of about 2.3 million.
The largest city in Bolivia is however neither Sucre nor La Paz, it is in fact Santa Cruz de la Sierra, which as of 2009, had a population of 1,594,926, with 1,862,911 people live in the city and its metropolitan area.
