The Weather in Bolivia

Located on the southern hemisphere the cold seasons (fall and winter) go from May to September and the hot seasons (spring and summer) from October to April, also considered as the rainy season.
The climate varies a lot in Bolivia, depending on the region and geography, going from freezing cold in the Andean region (La Paz, Oruro and Potosi), to scorching hot in the Bolivian Amazon region (Pando, Beni and Santa Cruz).  

As you can see on the graphic below, La Paz located on the west side of the country is colder than Santa Cruz, on the Amazon basin. The mid way point betwen the Andean cold weather and the rain forest heat of the Amazon could be found in the valleys region (Cochabamba, Chuquisaca and Tarija). As you can see on the above mentioned graphic, Cochabamba located in the heart of the country has the mildest and driest weather.

Best season to visit Bolivia
The dry season is best time for traveling to Bolivia (from May to October) due to the better road conditions, generally sunny skies and warm temperatures during the day but really cold during the night.
Travel to most regions of Bolivia is certainly possible year round, but you have to have in mind that during the rainy season (December to March) normally some dirt roads become flooded and it could take sometime until tractors clear them, this is certainly true on the Amazon region, on the west side of the country.
