Is Bolivia safe to travel to?

Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador are the so-called countries of the central Andes and rather not safe to travel to Bolivia until few years ago. Looking back in time Bolivia was not safe at all to travel to until 1990, due to the poverty of the majority of population and to the drugs war. In fact, that was the time when the coca cultivation was moved by cartels to Colombia. Bolivia was not safe to travel to because of political war, too many coup d'etat and too many military interventions in the state issues. President Evo Morales, elected in 2008 decided it was time for the drugs, tin and silver mining oligarchies to stop. He even bought Russian helicopters in order to fight against theese crime structures.
