Amid ongoing unrest in the country, the State Department has reissued a Level 2 warning for Bolivia, advising travelers to “Exercise Increased Caution.”
In an updated advisory, the U.S. State Department warns travelers to avoid traveling to Chapare and reconsider traveling to the Yungas region due to crime.
“Demonstrations, strikes, and roadblocks can occur at any time in Bolivia,” the State Department revealed in its advisory. “Demonstrations can result in violence. Roadblocks and strikes may cut off traffic and restrict the flow of goods and services around the country. Domestic and international flights may be delayed or unexpectedly canceled.”
According to USA Today, across the country, Bolivians participated in a national assembly led by the opposition to discuss whether or not to resume protests that initially began in December following the arrest of Santa Cruz Gov. Luis Fernando Camacho on terrorism charges.
