How much does food cost in Bolivia
by: BoliviaBella

Are you referring to purchasing food in a supermarket, an open market, or restaurants? Generally speaking, food costs less at open markets but you sacrifice quality for price. I don't suggest purchasing food that needs refrigeration at an open market because meat, fish and dairy products are not refrigerated. However, open markets are cheapest for fruit, vegetables and grains.

You can purchase just about any type of food you need at a supermarket with prices slightly higher to much higher than at open markets, depending on whether or not you want imported or local items.

If you're referring to food expenses in restaurants, there are hundreds of restaurants of varying quality and many different types of cultural food.

In general, food is very, very cheap when compared to the U.S. or Europe (not sure where you are writing us from). It's a little difficult to answer your question or give you a price comparison because food prices vary greatly from region to region even in the US or Europe.

If you could be a little more specific, it would be helpful - would really like to answer your question as best as I can - just need more info from you do so OK?
