Bolivia has two distinct seasons: summer (November to April) is the rainy season, so it is best to visit during the winter months (May to October) when the roads are in better condition and the climate more comfortable. That said you will experience every kind of climate in Bolivia at any time of year (often in one day!) with temperatures soaring and dropping with the sun and altitude.
