Condé Nast Traveler Logo By Megan Spurrell of Condé Nast Traveler | Slide 1 of 11: Bolivia has long been overshadowed by its neighbors Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Peru, thanks to fewer accommodation options and an absence of non-stop flights from the U.S. But there's plenty of reasons to visit the South American country—and it seems that U.S. travelers are finally starting to take notice. Spectacular natural sights like the Salar de Uyuni salt flats and the crimson Laguna Colorada lake are ripe for exploring, while newer draws, like destination restaurant Gusta and Tarija's blossoming wine scene are putting Bolivia on the culinary map, too. Plus, with the Amazing Escapes lodge in Uyuni having just opened last month, a new swath of luxury travelers are starting to pay attention. Here's why you should visit Bolivia before everyone else does.
