Bolivia contains a mix of Spanish and Indigenous heritage, acting as a natural bridge connecting the Andean regions with the Amazon. Heirs of glorious and ancient cultures, many people in Bolivia still preserve centuries-old traditions, shown by the diverse languages, uniquely colorful fashion, dances and music, and a veritable treasure of native folklore. Bolivia’s capital, La Paz, is the world’s highest capital city at two miles above sea level.
Bolivians tend to be relaxed about everything, especially time and punctuality. They are open, friendly, welcoming, and affectionate. Bolivians often hug, kiss on the cheeks, or say hello to everyone they meet.
