WARNING: In August 2010 in north east Bolivia suspicious plague incidents were recorded, resulting in a young man's death. Before going to Bolivia, check carefully the status of the disease and consult your experts to avoid possible exposure.
Apply common sense and take precautions that apply elsewhere. All tourists should be careful when selecting a travel guide and never accept medication from unverifiable sources. Women tourists should be cautious when traveling alone. At night try to use "radio taxis" as fake cabs are common and robbings and even rapes do occur. It is a good idea to register with the consulate of your country of residence upon entry into the country.
