Here's a little information about Bolivia, South America and Petita that you might find useful.
Bolivia and its neighboring countries are characterized by beautiful and vast landscapes - a place where it is still possible to find yourself utterly alone in the most remote countryside imaginable. Considered one of the last remaining ‘authentic’ tourist experiences you can have, Bolivia sits like the crown jewel right in the center of the continent, making it the perfect start point for your adventure in South America.

- Cross border convenience – permission to travel to other countries in South America (on request)
- One-way hire, to or from many destinations in South America
- Guided tours on request
- Detailed pre-trip briefing with tips on where to go, where to buy fuel, where to stay, and what to see
Where are we located?
Petita is based in Cochabamba, set in the foothills of the Andes mountains. A pretty and relaxed city with multiple daily flights from Santa Cruz and La Paz, Cochabamba sits at a comfortable altitude of 2600m – an ideal height for acclimatization. Its central location offers easy and direct access to almost anywhere in Bolivia. Cochabamba is only 1 day’s drive from the Salar de Uyuni, 1 day’s drive from the Che Guevara route and 1 day’s drive from the Amazon rainforest. The city is very easy to navigate around with light traffic.
We are happy to deliver or collect the car in other cities if you prefer.
