Climate:
In general terms the tropical eastern lowlands are warm (often hot), humid and rainy. The Andes are quite temperate in the lower foothills and sheltered valleys, but temperatures decrease by increased altitude, reaching Arctic-like levels in the higher elevations.

The elevated plateaus that ring the mountains (Altiplano) are ravaged by strong, cold winds, and an arid, overall chilly climate throughout most of the year.

High and low temperatures in Bolivia depend primarily on elevation and have very little seasonal variation. Overall, rainfall is heaviest in the summer months, with the southern areas of the country receiving the least amounts of precipitation.

La Paz, located high in the Andes, has different weather conditions depending on one's altitude within the city. Regardless, and overall, the average winter high temperatures reach the high 50s, while in summer, daily highs are in the low 70s. Afternoon rainfall is common in summer, and clear, sunny skies are winter staples.
