Is couchsurfing safe in Bolivia

While it is possible to find couchsurfing options in Bolivia through the various city groups on sites such as, it may not be a very safe option, especially for women traveling alone. A tourist from China was raped after using the site to book free accommodations for herself in a European country.

Their events may be fun and safe if you are participating in a group.

In addition, you should familiarize yourself with some of the crimes directed at tourists to ensure you don't suffer any physical harm or lose your belongings while in Bolivia.

We would love anyone who has used a couchsurfing website to book accommodations in Bolivia write a couchsurfing review and share about their experiences in our Hotel Review section, where you can review hotels, hostels, inns, and couchsurf options, so that our website visitors, such as yourself, can make a more informed decision.
