A place where indigenous, colonial and modern histories collide, La Paz buzzes with the energy of almost a million people living in a caldera-shaped canyon. Under the watch of the majestic Illimani mountain, you can peruse the Witch market for mysterious treasures, enjoy a few savory salteñas (baked Bolivian pasties), or take a tour at the Museum of Ethnography to better understand the unique characteristics of the many, diverse cultures of Bolivia.
At 3,600 metres above sea level, the city’s high altitude locale makes breathlessness a part of everyday life, at least for visitors! The plazas throng with pedestrians and cholas – bowler-hatted Aymara women selling local goods, while the roads are packed with buses and battered cabs, painted in vibrant colors. Respite is a rare commodity in a city to dynamic and entwines in its own flow of things, though we will be sure to find you a cozy hotel and quiet café to observe the hustle and bustle of this most captivating city.
