Perfect Bolivian Rice

Dear Chef Noly: When I eat rice in Bolivian restaurants it's ALWAYS perfect and delicious but when I cook rice at home it's fluffy and sticky. What do Bolivians do to make such perfect rice?

This is for HORRIBLE!
by: FYI

@HORRIBLE: If you don't like this rice its probably because you can't cook... keep the negative comments to yourself and allow other people who have open minds and active interests in other cultures/cuisines to actually enjoy this dish, rather than deterring people who can cook from trying it. You may want to reconsider your cooking abilities if you're not able to whip up something as simple as rice.

Bolivian Rice

One thing to add to this, which is odd and I have never understood. In Boliva, they use 3 cups of water for 1 cup of white rice. Not sure why their ratio is different than the normal 2:1 everywhere else. My original assumption is that its do to the higher altitude, however, my wife's aunt lives here in Florida and she also cooks 3 cups water to 1 cup rice. Explanation?
