Bolivia was our Country of the Week. We looked at the history of the land from pre-Columbian times all the way to independence. We also scrounged up quite a few interesting tidbits that sure surprised us! Learn more HERE.

Our Travel Guide set off into the towering peaks of the Andes and sprawling Amazon rainforest (as well as a few vibrant and beautiful cities). This is Bolivia the way it was meant to be experienced. Start your journey HERE.

This week’s Currency Spotlight highlighted the Bolivian boliviano. In addition to a closer look at the currency’s history, design, and value, we also examined the country’s economy in greater depth. See more HERE.
