South America is filled with beautiful destinations where newlyweds can celebrate their love, and one of the most unexpected of those destinations is Bolivia. While Bolivia isn’t packed with all-inclusive resorts or white-sand beaches, wander through its mystical landscapes and throw-back towns, and you’ll find that romance is alive and well.
Considering a Bolivia honeymoon and don’t know where to go? Read about our favorite romantic vistas in Bolivia, below—they might just tip the scale.
This is the world’s largest salt flat, so it should come as no surprise that getting to see it is pretty incredible. Its starck-white surface stretches for miles, and all around it, lovers can see an almost-fairytale-like landscape of high-altitude lagoons, hot springs, volcanoes and geysers. Fair warning: the rough ride to get there is bumpy, but no one has ever regretted making the trip. For added romance, stay at the luxurious Palacio del Sal, right on the flats—it’s the only hotel in the world made completely out of salt. (Pro tip: Let Surtrek help you plan your journey, and it’ll be a weekend steeped in romance like you’ve never seen before.)
When planning a Bolivia honeymoon, don’t forget to make time for a stop at the celestial Isla del Sol. There’s absolutely no traffic on the island, and couples can walk hand-in-hand as they take in the sweeping valleys, majestic mountains and glistening waters of stunning Lake Titicaca. Watch the sunset over the lake, and we think you’ll both agree—Isla del Sol is pretty magical.
Craving a lazy Bolivia honeymoon? Look no further than this precious little town, which is known for its warm weather, lounge-worthy hotel pools, local restaurants and heavenly views of the valley below. It’s just a two-hour drive from La Paz, and if you want to mix your beautiful views with a little exploration, just wander right outside Coroico. There are waterfalls, rivers and other villages worth strolling through, too.
Get a taste of Mediterranean romance in this southern Bolivian city, where colonial architecture and vineyards abound. The wine is cheap and the food is good, so spend your Bolivia honeymoon eating and drinking in adorable streetside restaurants, or if you want to bask in a little bit of Mother Nature, letting a local row you and your special someone around Lake San Jacinto. Your boat will give you the best view in town.
Drive a few hours outside of Santa Cruz and you’ll stumble on this charming little village. Sitting in the depths of a lush valley, go here to see a pre-Colombian fortress, an animal refuge, waterfalls and swimming holes, or to eat and drink at some of its local eateries or funky-fun bars. For real romance, let your Surtrek guide book you both a stay in Samaipata’s surrounding hills, where a slew of exclusive cabanas promise you both the seclusion, vistas and luxury you crave.
