The national currency is the Boliviano, also usually called
“peso”. To exchange money, there are exchange offices (casa de cambio) and some
important banks in the city. But you must know that they accept easier American
dollars than Euros.
Be also careful with
false banknotes that go around, as well as torn and spliced banknotes which
sometimes are not accepted.
Because of its value lower than in other Latin-American
countries, the living cost in Bolivia is reduced.
Knowing the surface covering all the Bolivian territory, the
highest budget is for transport. But with the tourist development the country
knows, there is a huge variety of means of transportation at your disposal and
within range of everyone’s budget.
