Climate and Average Weather in Bolivia

Bolivia's location on the eastern side of the Andes mountains is the most determining factor for the climate in Bolivia. During summer it has contrasting cold nights and warm days. Winter nights see temperatures fall below freezing. Rainfall occurs mainly during the summer months, between November and March. The weather in Bolivia is strongly influenced by the extreme differences in altitude and the amount of rainfall a specific region receives, this gives the country a variety of climates.

Because you're dealing with different climate areas, it's a little more difficult to designate one specific period as the best travel time for Bolivia. We would suggest the months June, July or August, especially if you want to travel around. This is the driest period in Bolivia.
