After the Spaniards defeated the Incas in the 16th century, Bolivia's predominantly. Indian population was reduced to slavery. The remoteness of the Andes helped protect the Bolivian Indians from the European diseases that decimated other South American Indians. By the end of the 17th century, the mineral wealth had begun to dry up. The country won its independence in 1825 and was named after Simon Bolivar, the famous liberator.

For example, the Amboró National Park, or Laguna Verde seem awesome, and I want to take a vacation there. Also, the weather in South America is opposite of North America, so it would be cool to go there in our winter and be warm in their summer. Finally, the Bolivian people have a very different culture than we do. They love to dance, and their foods are very unique. That is why I would like to visit Bolivia.
