    Wahouh! These pictures are beautiful, they bring back good memories. I loved Bolivia, now I want to go back and take prettier pictures than last time 🙂

      Hi Tabitha, I believe you *can* drive yourself, but I’ve heard it’s very easy to get lost and can definitely put a toll on your car—if you’re renting, you might want to talk to the rental company and see if insurance covers that area. I have read that if you can find Jeep tracks to follow, this is one of the best ways to get there (as in past tour guides going and following their tracks)…since I haven’t personally driven myself and took a guided tour, I can’t say I would recommend driving yourself, but you might be able to do it!

      P.S. This Lonely Planet forum has some pretty good info:

      Additionally, I’d suggest joining the TBA Travel Tribe and asking the ladies there if they’ve done this and what their experience was like:

      I hope that helps + please report back with what you decide! <3
