You need to do your own Airline reservation. You can use the system is best for you. We request the participants to arrive on August 11th in the morning and to leave on August 20th in the evening from Cochabamba.
We suggest purchasing the Linea Boliviana de Aviacion (BoA) and use this website to purchase your flight: http://www.corporateflights.com/.
You need to purchase the following flight:
Departing Flight: Thursday, August 10 (Arrives – Friday, August 11)
Departs 11:00 pm Miami, FL MIA – Arrives 8:35 am Cochabamba, Bolivia CBB
It is Flight 767, Boeing 767
Returning Flight: Sunday, August 20 (Arrives – Monday, August 21)
Departs 8:30 pm Cochabamba, Bolivia CBB – Arrives 5:00 am Miami, FL MIA
It is Flight 766, Boeing 737
This flight departs Miami and arrives in Santa Cruz, then takes you to Cochabamba after a brief layover. The cost will be around $700.
In our opinion this is the best option but if you prefer to go with your frequent fly airline we suggest you purchase a flight to Santa Cruz and then you purchase a flight from Santa Cruz to Cochabamba. We don’t recommend the flight to La Paz given it is an airport at a very high altitude.
You can use the same website: http://www.corporateflights.com/ to purchase the Bolivia portion and to make sure you leave a minimum of 2 hrs. between those flights.
