Staying healthy in Bolivia: Here’s what you need to know

Bolivia has a range of health facilities from public hospitals to private clinics, but standards may differ per region. Here's what travelers should know:

Make sure to stay updated on routine vaccines

  • Keep updated with Bolivia's COVID-19 requirements, such as quarantine, testing, or vaccine certificates, through your airline or Bolivia government website.

  • Ensure your routine vaccines such as measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, varicella (chickenpox), polio, and your yearly flu shot are up to date.

  • Yellow fever vaccination is recommended for all travelers aged 9 months and older traveling to areas below 2,300 meters, except for areas within the departments of La Paz and Oruro. Some regions require proof of vaccination for entry.

Medical facilities

  • Private clinics are present in Bolivia, especially in major cities like La Paz, Santa Cruz, and Cochabamba, which offer higher-quality care with some English-speaking staff.

  • Public hospitals provide basic care, but they may not meet the standards you're accustomed to.

Health insurance

We’d always recommend taking out health insurance before you travel anywhere from any destination.

Contact your insurance provider before traveling to make sure you have the right level of coverage.

Other things to consider:

  • Trip cancellation, delay, and interruption benefits.

  • Medical expenses and medical evacuation benefits.

  • Baggage coverage.

Things to be aware of when visiting Bolivia

Keep an extra eye on the following to keep healthy and safe during your trip to Bolivia:

1. Altitude sickness: Many parts of Bolivia are at high altitudes. Gradually acclimate, stay hydrated, avoid alcohol, and consider medication if you're prone to altitude sickness. The sun can also be particularly strong in high-altitude areas, so make sure to protect yourself.

2. Water and food safety: Drink only bottled, boiled, or treated water and avoid ice cubes, and eat well-cooked meals, avoid raw vegetables and peeled fruits.

3. Insect protection: Use DEET-containing insect repellents and wear long sleeves and pants to prevent mosquito and other insect bites, especially in the Amazon region.

Medication for personal use

Follow these tips to bring into Bolivia some over-the-counter medicines:

  • Declare all medications: Report all medication for personal use to customs authorities.

  • Original packaging: Always keep medicines in their original containers and transparent bags in your hand luggage.

  • Prescription or doctor's letter: Present the medical prescription issued by your doctor or other competent authority, in English.

  • Check for restrictions: Call Bolivia's Embassy to verify that all of your prescriptions are legal to bring with you.

  • Quantity aligned with itinerary: Bring only a reasonable quantity that aligns with the duration of your stay to avoid complications.
