Bolivia Weather

Even though Bolivia is situated on the Tropic of Capricorn, it has great climactic shifts, with wide differences between day and night, due to its variations in altitude. The temperature of Bolivia is regulated by its latitude as well as its altitude in relation to sea level. At a higher altitude, the temperature has a tendency to diminish, and at a lower altitude, it tends to increase. On the average, the temperature will drop 0.55 ºC for every 100 meters of altitude you climb.

In the Cordillera mountain range area, which is regulated completely by altitude, it is extremely cold. There you can find snow caps on the mountains that never melt at temperatures as frigid as those encountered at the poles, while in the Amazonian region, you will encounter a more tropical climate, with an average temperature of 22ºC.
