  • Valle De La Luna

    4 out of 5 stars

    La Paz Things to Do

    We had a good look at Valle De La Luna even though we were there for only a couple of hrs. What impressed us most is the silence that is experienced there. It was well worth visiting. Enjoy my photos of the Valley of the Moon. Gerry, the_dutchman

  • Local Buses

    La Paz Transportation

    The crowded little vans cover the whole city. Each have numbers and a list of destinations. The destinations are not in order, so A to B often becomes A to Z, then T, thorugh R before getting to B then A. Ask in the hotel which number goes to where. You pay between 1 and 3.5 Bol per journey. This is max of about 25p

  • Puma Punku

    Tiahuanaco Off The Beaten Path

    Don't make the mistake that I did when you go to Tiahuanaco/Tiwanaku. I saw the small sign for Puma Punku but did not stop. It has not been restored but contains one of the big mysteries of the ancient world. It is still not known how those massive stones were cut and moved with the technology available at the time. I certainly plan to stop there...

  • Aymara New Year

    Tiahuanaco Local Customs

    Every June, 21 there is a celebration for the Aymara's New Year that matches the winter solstice. They wait all night to receive the first sunlights around the ruins. It's extremely cold so be prepared!

  • Taxi or tour

    Tiahuanaco Transportation

    When looking at options of how to reach Tiahuanaco, there are on one side the organized tours and on the other the taxi. The first enterprise charges per person (10USD) and the second – per car, per day (30USD). Even for two people, the taxi becomes a bargain, since it can pick you up at any desired time from your hotel, unlike the tours, which...

  • Yungas Road

    Coroico Transportation

    The road from La Paz to Coroico is called Yungas Road, and it's one of the most scenic drives I've ever been on. It winds through the mountains and gradually changes from the harsh altiplano to a lush rainforest landscape as you descend to Coroico. While on the trip we saw mountains, a large lake, frozen waterfalls, herds of llamas, a few shops,...

  • The Main Square

    Coroico Things to Do

    Like most Latin American cities, Coroico has a plaza or main square, which is where things happen (we visited Coroico on Bolivia's independence day--August 6--so there was a parade going on that circled the square), and which is a great place for just quietly relaxing and people watching, or even meeting locals and practicing your Spanish! I have a...

  • Excellent Local Food

    Sorata Restaurants

    The Cafe Jalisco was a small place but the food was tasty and the service good. We had lunch there and ordered off the Menu del Dia (menu of the day). I had the Tacos de Pollo (chicken tacos), Sopa Verdura (clear vegetable soup), Pan Tostada con Ajo (garlic bread), and Panqueque (like a crepe with chocolate syrup). The total cost was 18 BOB (less...

  • Khare Khare Ceremony in Apachita Pass

    Sorata Local Customs

    When we were driving to Sorata, there was some kind of religious or shaman ceremony going on at a small lake in the pass. There must have been 15-20 men there. Of course, we did not stop or take pictures. It is common in the Andes for the mountain passes to have religious significance in both the Christian- and Pachamama-based cultures. My guide...

  • Dinner on the Plaza

    Sorata Restaurants

    The Ristorante Bologna has both local and Italian food. I had Enchiladas con Carne. They were like soft tacos with steamed rice and guacomole (20 BOB). It was 9 BOB for the large Fanta.
