Tarija is the spot
by: Anonymous

If you ask anyone in Bolivia, even those living in La paz and other parts of the country. they will tell you Tarija is the best place to live in bolivia and they are right. I actually googled best place to live in bolivia and all signs pointed to tarija, i have lived here 3 years, we moved all over the country, to cocha, to beni, and coroico thinking since tarija was so great there might be something better in other parts, and we found out, tarija IS the best spot and we moved back 6 months ago. Its safe, walk around time any time day or night, tranquil, quiet, totally friendly, known as the capital of the smile and more and more expats all the time. you can look me up on Facebook, name is Miranda Booher, and i would be happy to connect, help find housing and anything else to help families get started. we are also from US.

I'm clueless, too, but maybe Cochabamba?
by: Anonymous

We have an American friend who has been living in Cochabamba for five years. He is a very pale red head; and despite his obvious foreign-ness, he loves living there. My husband is headed down to check the place out probably in Nov. when our friend is on break from University. He says the climate is ideal, and that it's very safe unless you are drunk at 4am in a bad neighborhood (his exact words) So, I am no expert by any means, but this website as well as a few other articles are quickly informing me of the basics. I particularly like the idea of Cochabamba the more I think about it because they have an American international school of Bolivia AIS/B (where we would probably send our three kids)
Have you found any leads on any other places in Bolivia?
