You can, of course, take a direct international flight.
It is also possible to make a stop in Brazil, in Argentina, in Peru, in Mexico, or in Chile before hitting your final destination.
We often organize tours including a week in Brazil followed by a few weeks in Patagonia or in the Andes, through our network of local agencies Terra Explora (Argentina, Bolivia, Mexico, Peru, Brazil). South America is a land of contrasts and it may be smart to do two trips in one, adventure in the Andes followed by a week long of Brazilian beaches. The program is tempting. The extra charges for a stay over are usually around $ 135 US.

In general, the flights towards Bolivia have as their final destination in Santa Cruz or in La Paz.
The majority of travelers arrive in La Paz because they come first and foremost to discover the Andean Bolivia, the high plateau and its Aymara or Quechua population.
However, for the more curious and travelers coming for three weeks or more, we highly recommend an arrival in Santa Cruz. This will allow you to discover the less known facet of Bolivia which is the Orient (The low lands – 2/3 of the Bolivian territory is located at less than 600 meters above sea level, in the Amazon Basin). After a few days in this region (Jesuit missions, Amboro national park, Samaipata), you can easily plan a domestic flight to Sucre to start your tour of Andean Bolivia).
It is also possible to stop by Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, and Chile before going to Santa Cruz or La Paz.
We also organize tours to Bolivia combined with a stay in Peru, Brazil, Chile or and Argentina. Our network of tour operator, Terra Explora (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Mexico, Peru), allows us to organize easily and without intermediaries this type of travel. The supplements for a STOP are usually around $150.
