Begin Your New Life as an Expat in Bolivia

The pace of life is slow, the landscape is stunning, and the opportunities to make your money go further seem almost limitless. Bolivia expats lead a comfortable lifestyle, which makes the country an ideal place for those looking to retire. However, if you're not quite close to retirement yet, then you may want to consider life in or around Santa Cruz, where 40% of foreign investments in the country are made. Santa Cruz and El Alto are also ideal for families, as there are international schools offering English-speaking education. While work isn't always abundant throughout Bolivia, it is a fantastic country for property investments, farming, and even wine making. Living a luxury lifestyle on a low budget is entirely possible, especially with restaurants like Casa Criolla in El Alto offering sumptuous dishes at low prices.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Australia or Bahrain, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Your Social Network for Expatriates in Bolivia

If you're yet to arrive in this stunning country, venture into InterNations' monitored forums to explore the information offered by other Bolivia expatriates. As individuals who have experienced adjusting to life in the country themselves, they can offer information on finding a decent doctor, navigating Bolivian property laws, and settling into life with your family. The Bolivia expatriates on InterNations also meet regularly for InterNations Official Events, as well as smaller interest-based InterNations Groups. Whether it's evenings out exploring local cuisine or looking for someone to go hiking with, InterNations' communities in Bolivia feature a host of events that'll allow you to meet your fellow expatriates.
