What you should absolutely know about La Paz

City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

You will experience so much during your La Paz day trips, especially if you like being outside. Every second of every day is an adventure in La Paz, a true mecca for climbers and adventurers. Organise a multi-day journey from the Andes to the Amazon or a trip along rivers in the heart of the Amazon. Explore the many remote places in La Paz or visit the San Pedro caves. Journey to the Noel Kempff Mercado National Park to see the stunning spectacular waterfalls. If you’re up for the adventure of a lifetime Bolivia is the place to go

Visit The Witches’ Market, the Plaza Murillo, and Amboro National Park. Take a trip to Valle de la Lunor and Laguna Verde. See the Tiwanaku or hike up the Illimani Mountains. The Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, is also worth a visit

“¡ Hola!” is “Hello” and “¡ Adios!” means “Goodbye”. “Gracias” means “Thank you” and “Por favor” means “Please”. Bolivia has its own slang words too. Use “¡Velay!” to express surprise, “altitude sickness” is referred to as soroche”

One particular dish is Papas Rellenas, a stuffed potato, stuffed with cheese, eggs, or vegetables and then deep fried. Quinoa is another food staple and is used in many dishes.  One cannot leave without having Picante de Pollo, a spicy chicken dish

La Paz’s weather is often unpredictable. For most, the climate is cooler than expected. The warm season (October to December) is very mild and dry, with temperatures in the 60s. The cold season last from June to July and has temperatures in the 50s

The bus from the airport to the city center should cost around 10 Bolivian bolivianos. To travel like a local, catch a ride on a rufis (minibus) for 2 Bolivian bolivianos. A taxi will take you into the city for 50 Bolivian bolivianos

The best way to get around La Paz is by the bus (often the closest cities are many hours away). Bicycling is also an option, but it is best to stick with taxis. Las Paz is fairly walkable once you get to the central bus terminal
