Where does the sun rise in Bolivia?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Bolivia is Puerto Quijarro in the region of Santa Cruz. There, the sun rises at 5:36 am and sets at 6:32 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Yumani (La Paz) at 19:15.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Sucre lies on the 19th degree of southern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator. While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Bolivia, it lasts only an average of 25 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Sucre, while in December it's 26 minutes.
