La Paz and Sucre (2 capitals)
Bolivia is a country in central South America, with a varied terrain spanning Andes Mountains, the Atacama Desert and Amazon Basin rainforest. At more than 3,500m, its administrative capital, La Paz, sits on the Andes’ Altiplano plateau with snow-capped Mt. Illimani in the background. Nearby is glass-smooth Lake Titicaca, the continent’s largest lake, straddling the border with Peru.

Atlandis Top 3 'Things to Do'
La Senda Verde
Located in the Amazon basin along the banks of the Yolosa River, La Senda Verde Wildlife Sanctuary is a privately run organization that has offered refuge to over 350 animals rescued from illegal trafficking and abuse. These monkeys, bears, ocelots, tortoises, and birds roam the 30-acre (12-hectare) nature reserve freely, and are cared for by a team of volunteers.
Perhaps the best-known town on the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca, Copacabana retains a laidback feel despite serving as a popular religious pilgrimage site and jumping-off point for exploration of the lake. Take a boat to Sun Island (Isla del Sol), climb El Calvario, or visit the 16th-century shrine at the Basilica of Our Lady of Copacabana.
The Llama and Salt Museum
The Llama and Salt Museum (Museo de la Llama y la Sal) sits just outside of Colchani on the way to the famous Uyuni salt flats. The small museum displays a collection of llama statues, many of them made from salt harvested from the nearby flats. Vendors are often outside the museum selling small salt sculpture souvenirs.
