Hi,

What is the cheapest way of getting from Mexico City to Bolivia?
I don't care if I have a lot of stops or to go by bus parts of the way, But I need the trip to cost less than $450 if possible.
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Sash

Hi, I will be very glad to help you! an airfare rate Mexico DF , to la paz and then La Paz, DF. would cost somewhere between 700 US, that would be with TACA , starting from DF, then, San Jose de Costarica, then Lima and then La paz, therefore the less expensive way to get to Bolivia I can think of is by land, From Mexico you may want to ride a bus to the border of Guatemala, then Honduras, then Nicaragua,Panama and then into Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, from there into Bolivia. I personally do not think that is a "safe" trip since as you may know travelling in Central America can become very harsh! but it all lays in your desition, another and perhaphs better option would be to get a "Ship" that navigates from Mexico to Peru or Chile with merchandise, this huge ships take a long time but I would definetly ride one of this rather than risk my life and possesions through Central America.
My personal advice: Get some money together and fly, I know it is always an effort to get money, but you must also take care of your personal safetyand timewise it would be far more convinient.
Hope this helps, any more questions I, m here ok?
Good luck!
Mike
