Yes... You are right. And it is not just the 100 U$ that matters... It is also the hassle of it.
Our kind and wise ruler (Evo Morales) has decided to slowly strangle tourism in this fantastic biking-country. But no worries... I am sure that sooner or later someone will do the same to him as he is making more and more enemies around here.
For all you bikers out there: Imagine a country where only 5 % of the roads is paved
and the altitudes vary from 400 to 5,500
above sea-level. (roads that is).
Combine that with neat camping-spots everywhere you look... and what do you come up with?
