Located in the heart of South America, Bolivia is a land-locked country which incorporates the Andes Mountains and high plateaus to the south-west and Amazon basin to the north-east.
Bolivia has two main seasons, the wet summer season and the dry winter season. The wettest months are during the temperate summertime from Dec-Feb. The driest months are May-July which feature cool days and cold nights. Due to the severity of summertime downpours, many of Bolivia’s underdeveloped roads are impassable during the wet season. The salt pans of Uyuni are inundated during the summertime.
