At Mudinmar we assist in moving to the main cities in Bolivia: La Paz, Cochabamba, Oruro and Potosi.
Bolivia has a population of close to 10.1 million and its area is the 6th largest in Iberian America.
Geographic landmarks like the Andean Mountain range, the Amazon, Andean Plateau, Moxos plains and the Gran Chaco, all enter into Bolivian territory, making it one of the most biodiverse countries in the world.
Bolivia’s economy has been based on the extraction and exportation of natural resources, such as minerals and natural gases. However, the GDP per-capita is one of the lowest in Latin America which means it is considered to be a medium-low income country. The official currency is the Boliviano. One of the most controversial factors that contributes to the Bolivian economy is the production of coca leaves (Bolivia is the 3rd biggest producer). Whilst used and consumed traditionally for religious or medicinal purposes by a segment of the population, at the same time it is used illegally to make cocaine for the European and North American market.
In terms of culture, Bolivia is characterised by a variety of expression as a result of its geographic location, and ethic diversity characterises the area. Bolivia has close to 40 ethnic groups, much of which still follow their traditions, culture and language, which means a cultural environment heavily influenced by the indigenous cultures.
Bolivia’s geographic make up gives it a varied climate, from the tropical conditions in the eastern regions to the polar climate the Andean West. Summers are hot and humid in the eastern zone and dry in the West, with rainfall that affects the temperature, humidity, wind, pressure and evaporation. Therefore, depending on the area (flats, plateaus, valleys and Chaco) different types of weather are found: tropical, polar, mild and semitropical.
