All non-acclimatized travellers, including children, are potentially at risk of developing altitude illness which depends on level of exertion, speed of ascent, altitude reached, humidity, oxygen, and air pressure levels, as well as personal susceptibility. With a surface area of 9,064 km (3,500 sq mi), it is larger than Puerto Rico and is South America's second largest lake by surface area. At 11,942 feet (3,640 meters) above sea level, La Paz’ extreme altitude affects almost all visitors to some extent. Risk of altitude sickness is present for travellers arriving in La Paz and for those continuing their travels to the Cordillera Real or skiing at Chacaltaya (5421m / 17785ft).

Immediate descent to a lower altitude and administration of oxygen are imperative. For example, in Bolivia if you travel to Sucre which lies at 2750 meters (9000 feet) and you spend several days at that altitude, your body will acclimatise to 2,750 meters. Bolivia has a high level of biodiversity, considered one of the greatest in the world, as well as several ecoregions with ecological sub-units such as the Altiplano, tropical rainforests (including Amazon rainforest), dry valleys, and the Chiquitania, which is a tropical savanna.
