Rich in history and culture, Bolivia promotes a strong mix between indigenous and Europeans seen in many of its nuances. This was because the country was part of the Inca Empire before the Spanish takeover, maintaining to this day influences from both civilizations. A good example of this is Quichua, a language used by more than 10 million people in South America with Andean heritage. It is the country with the lowest human development index on the continent, with 60% of its population living in poverty. It is a destination for those who like history, culture and nature, especially La Paz, Uyuni, Copacabana, Potosí, Sucre and Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Like Paraguay, it has no outlet to the sea.
