    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

    Having asked a few locals and travelers alike, many commented that Layka was an all-around restaurant with a decent selection of traditional foods. The prices are a little on the high side (relative to local price), but that's what you get for being in the middle of the tourist areas. They have basic foods, but their popularity comes from things...

    You can buy Uyuni tour packages from nearly anywhere in Bolivia (and San Pedro de Atacama). The closer to Uyuni you are, typically the lower the price. All tours go to the same places - so don't buy the first one, shop around. Case in point, I paid 300Bs less than another couple in the same car, 'and' I had them include the park entry tickets...

  • Los Patos

    Cochabamba Restaurants

    The price was cheap. It is better if you eat cuy (guinea pig) together with a local beer, as I did. They also serve ducks, birds and other rare animals. I was the only foreigner, the rest of the customers were bolivians. They made an exception with me letting me go inside the kitchen. I was very satisfied with my culinary experience..

    When looking at options of how to reach Tiahuanaco, there are on one side the organized tours and on the other the taxi.

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...
