May Itinerary

Hola Amigxs,

Find our exciting itinerary for our final month in Bolivia below!

May 8: We leave Tiquipaya and head to Buena Vista! We arrive at night and then will spend the whole day on the 9th preparing for to trek.

May 10-14: These five days/four nights will be spent in the magical Parque Amboro, where we will hike through natural pools/waterfalls, an area with 50 different species of orchid, spend a day with thousand-year-old species of fern that were around millions of years ago (with the dinosaurs)! Throughout all of this, we hope to see lots of wildlife, including hundreds of bird species, insects, reptiles, monkeys, sloths, capybaras, and more.

May 15: Following our trek, we will arrive at Santa Cruz! This will be a stopover for some hot showers and yummy food as we continue on to the small town of Samaipata.

May 16-19: We arrive at Semaipata! We will see two main attractions: the stunning caves and waterfalls at the Ecological Center, and El Fuerte, a pre-colonial archaeological site which houses buildings from the Chanè, Inca, and Spanish cultures. We will also start some of our transference activities and begin to debrief this incredible 9 month journey we have had together!

May 19-22: We land in La Paz on the 19th! Over the course of the next three days, we have a diverse set of activities planned. We hope to fill a day with charlas, and possible take a tour of the US embassy; we will see Tiwanaku, another pre-colonial archaeological site which dates back to before the Inca empire, and, finally, we will visit our El Alto homestay families from back in September, and visit Teatro Trono.

May 23-29: These six days we’ve set aside for reflection and deeply debriefing the time we’ve spent here in Bolivia. We will do this at Copacabana, a town also on the shores of beautiful Lake Titicaca.

May 29-31: Following a wholesome five days, we will head back to La Paz, gather our things, buy last-minute souvenirs, visit last-minute museums, probably cry a lot, and finally head back home.
