By Train:
In Bolivia, the trains are not great. The most famous of them, the Tren de la Muerte, connects Santa Cruz de la Sierra to the border with Brazil. Who wants to enter Bolivia by land from Corumbá, Brazil can not escape the Tren de la Muerte. There are different classes in the Tren de la Muerte, the most expensive are even reasonable, clean with bunk beds. In Bolivia there are other lines, such as going from Ouruo to Uyuni.
 
By car:
It is not easy to move around by car on Bolivia: beyond poor condition of some roads, there are many car thefts and robberies on the roads. If you choose this adventure, prefer a caravan of several cars, if possible 4 x 4 vehicles.
 
Bus:
The advantage of the buses in Bolivia is going for the whole country. Buses are a good idea for those who enjoy adventure, since some paths mountains come to be exciting (By the way, did you secure the travel of Bananatrips?). Although there are regular bus lines between the different cities of Bolivia, give preference to microautocarros tourism, more comfortable and safe and that often come pick you up at the hotel.
