4. CUSTOMS REGULATIONS- It’s illegal to remove any such objects from Bolivia without prior written permission by the correct Bolivian authority. Any form of fossil excavation, even picking up a fossil, with no prior written authorization from the appropriate Bolivian authority, can also be illegal. Violation of the law can result in lengthy slammer sentences and fines.
5. WHEN TO GO- Bolivia lies in the southern hemisphere so the winter runs from Might to October and summer from November to April. The most important climatic bourgeois to keep in mind is that it’s generally wet in the summer and dry in the winter. Think about that the high tourist season falls in the winter (June to September), thanks not just to climatic aspects, but also to the timing of European and North American summer holidays and also the fact that it’s also Bolivia’s leading fiesta season. This means that both foreign visitors and a lot of South Americans are traveling during this time period. Consequently, the right time to go to Bolivia is throughout the winter (dry season). For this period of time there are special discount rates in some Bolivia hotels.
