Bolivia Climate & Weather

Bolivia Climate and Weather

Due to the altitude, Bolivia's climate is one of extremes, with cold nights and warm days - temperatures can plummet to freezing on winter nights (May to October). Rain is heavy over the summer months (November to March), and Bolivia can be become very humid (especially at lower altitudes). The climate of Bolivia varies drastically between regions, so weather should be checked for each destination.

The dry winter season, between May and October, is the high season for tourism, and generally the best time to visit Bolivia, but tourists should check the best time to visit for the particular region and activity they are planning as the country has many different climatic zones.
