Our hundreds of Bolivian traditions would be difficult to summarize on a single page. Bolivian culture has been shaped and influenced by over 30 native ethnic groups and numerous immigrant (foreign) cultures and each has contributed its own beliefs and lifestyles to the potpourri of Bolivian customs and traditions. This is precisely what makes Bolivia one of the most colorful nations in South America.
A common misconception is that Bolivia culture and customs are very homogeneous. Most people picture Bolivia as an Andean country because the government has historically projected only the Aymara and Quechua cultures in massive tourism marketing efforts. Though these two Andean ethnic groups are very large and they are very intent upon preserving their traditions, the true culture of Bolivia includes many others.
