Voice of Travelers to Bolivia
Visiting La Paz With an Onward Ticket
I traveled on an onward ticket from Madrid through Bolivia to Argentina. I purchased the ticket with Iberia. While the ticket was expensive, I preferred this option instead of a return ticket so I could visit Bolivia. I bought the ticket through a travel agency in downtown Madrid. I was able to spend several days touring La Paz and its many churches. Iberia offered great service and good food was included in the price of my airfare ticket as well as the transfers from and to the airport in Bolivia. I can say I fell in love with Bolivia! With a direct ticket to Buenos Airles, this would not have been possible
Visiting Bolivia for a conference
I visited Bolivia last year for a conference that took place in La Paz. I was invited, so all my costs were covered by the institution which asked me to be its keynote speaker. Thanks to this invitation, I was able to get first class service aboard the American Airlines flight. This return ticket was probably quite pricey, but I just enjoyed the services. Only one event tarnished the otherwise perfect trip, and that was the cancellation of my flight ticket on the way back - the ticket was rebooked on a later date due to some technical issues at the airport in Bolivia. If my situation allows, I would love to return to Bolivia, and I might once again book my ticket for the premier class.
