The best time to visit Bolivia is between May and October.Although this is winter, you can expect mostly sunny days throughout Bolivia but cooler temperatures in altitude. The weather is more reliable at this time of year, which makes for easier transport, and better trekking and mountain biking. This is the best time to visit Salar de Uyuni. August is the most popular month.

November to April is the rainy season, and this often means flooding in Salar de Uyuni, and it would be a shame to miss this. Overland transportation also becomes difficult if not impossible in some areas. Climbing is dangerous, and trekking and biking tedious. However, February to April has plenty of religious festivals.
