La Paz and Death Road

BOLIVIA | Thu, 3 Sep 2015 | By sheree | Views [549]

We arrived in La Paz at night time and I didn't realise it was such a big city. I was imagining it to be similar to the more humble, lovely city of Cusco. We were dropped to our hostel - Wild Rover - Bridget was staying here too and said it wasn't as ... Read more >

Nous avons dû malheureusement annuler le trek de deux jours au Canyon de Colca pour raisons de santé... légumes mal lavés ou je ne sais quoi ... Pas cool car le paysage avait l'air très chouette et petit détail aussi ils ne connaissent pas vraiment ce ... Read more >

BOLIVIA | Tue, 5 Aug 2014 | By coggos | Views [912]

 This country is full to the brim with so many adventures and experiences. It is raw, honest and exciting. Probably not for the faint hearted. We saw so much celebration and dancing in every town we visited. They have a rich culture, which they ... Read more >

Last days in Bolivia: La Paz, Copacabana y Isla del Sol

BOLIVIA | Sun, 19 May 2013 | By a_johnson | Views [1338]

La Paz - 11,975 feet above sea level and you can certainly feel it! My time in La Paz was short, only two nights but that was more than enough for me. A capital city nestled low in a basin surrounded by mountains, it didn't have the wow factor as ... Read more >

Bolivia; Lucha Libre and my first 6000m climb (Isla del Sol, La Paz, Huayna Potosi)

BOLIVIA | Sun, 11 Nov 2012 | By kamzam | Views [1126]

After incredibly painful overnight journey I arrived at the border with Bolivia. Considering my previous experience with border crossing this has turned out to be pretty easy and painless. As I was alone again after leaving my international trekking ... Read more >

Lethal La Paz and the Death Road

BOLIVIA | Wed, 7 Mar 2012 | By doodledawn | Views [1389]

Having spent less than 24 hours in La Paz before Carnaval, I decided to backtrack a bit and give the city another look.  It also helped that Hannah, Tijs, and Bethune from my Salar tour were all heading in that direction anyway.  My cold was still ... Read more >

The Edge of the Map

BOLIVIA | Mon, 27 Feb 2012 | By doodledawn | Views [1371]

After catching the train from Oruro to Uyuni, I arrived with my new friends Bethune and Hannah and we looked for a hostel.   Bethune had caught the nasty flu that was going around and was not terribly coherent.   I found us a place to sleep near ... Read more >

Altiplano Llama Sausage

BOLIVIA | Wed, 15 Feb 2012 | By doodledawn | Views [867]

As I type, I am sitting in an internet cafe in Oruro, Bolivia.  It is cold as hell, and the altitude is around 3700m, but I think coming here was definitely a great idea. Backing up a bit, I spent most of the last week at Lago de Atitlan in Guatemala.... Read more >

Sweeeee! Fleeing the Pox up Baha

MEXICO | Sat, 13 Nov 2010 | By rachel_and_daniel | Views [1786]

We were rudely awakened at 6.00 by the ferry horn, telling us it was time to get up, get ready, and get off, as we'd arrived uneventfully in La Paz, at the south-eastern tip of Baha.  Baha is seemingly a different country, not because of the swarms ... Read more >

BOLIVIA | Sun, 4 Jul 2010 | By ryanandjo | Views [3656] | Comments [3]

We had been warned about the overnight buses in Bolivia, but we couldn’t avoid taking one from Sucre to La Paz as it was our only option. It was freezing cold and even though we were promised a toliet and blankets they did not materialise so we ... Read more >

Monkeys on the death road.

BOLIVIA | Sun, 19 Jul 2009 | By thebigtrip | Views [1865]

We returned to La Paz from the jungle and decided to spend a few days chilling out. We checked back into the Wild Rover for four more nights of good food and drink. That Thursday myself and James done the Worlds Most Dangerous Road (WMDR) cycle. ... Read more >

Higher and higher....

BOLIVIA | Wed, 1 Jul 2009 | By thebigtrip | Views [1146]

After the awful bus trip from Uyuni we were all wrecked after our Salt Flats trip. We decided to spend a few days in Potosi which is the highest city in the world at 4060ft above sea level. The altitude at this level was a killer and just doing simple ... Read more >

Getting high in La Paz

BOLIVIA | Fri, 29 May 2009 | By iainjosim | Views [1385] | Comments [7]

The ‘little altitude sickness’ we mentioned in our last entry turned out to be a bit more than that for Jo. She’s fine now, but spent almost three days in bed with altitude sickness and stomach ‘issues’ before calling a doctor at 1am and being admitted ... Read more >

La Paz, Incas und ein See der titikakat!

BOLIVIA | Fri, 8 May 2009 | By steffen_graz | Views [2762] | Comments [5]

Sodele liebe Leser, es geht wieder weiter. Zwar ned so spektakulär wie mit dem letzten Video, aber auch aus La Paz, vom Titikakasee und von der Isla del Sol gibt es doch so einiges zu erzählen. Angefangen hat das ganze Abenteuer nach der ... Read more >

Lost in La Paz

PERU | Fri, 8 May 2009 | By melissamain | Views [1168] | Comments [1]

The beds are hard and lumpy, the only shower that works is lukewarm, breakfast is not included, all rooms open out onto the central, very loud courtyard where groups of Israeli backpackers sit and smoke endless cigarettes. But it does smell better ... Read more >

Do not pass go...

BOLIVIA | Tue, 4 Nov 2008 | By steph_dave | Views [2621]

After soaking up the sun in Coroico, we went back to La Paz. We stayed in a different and more central hotel (Hotel Feuntes). La Paz was very laid back. We spent the days just walking around and window shopping (Dave loved that). There was ... Read more >

Bolivia - Lake Titicaca & La Paz

BOLIVIA | Sun, 2 Nov 2008 | By eoghancito | Views [2502] | Comments [1]

It was nice to be able to get the second of I don't know how many country stamps in our passports as we walked across the Bolivian border. We had heard rumours of dodgy border police taking your cash saying its fake so we had money in socks and concealed ... Read more >

Minibus, coach, bus, ferry, bus!

BOLIVIA | Thu, 14 Aug 2008 | By matsmith | Views [1191]

Our journey to Bolivia started at 7.15am, where we were loaded into a minibus which took us to the bus station. I think the driver was crazy, and he did actually force himself onto the wrong side of the road, rather than use the part of the road going ... Read more >

Death Road mountain bike trip to Coroica

BOLIVIA | Sat, 7 Jun 2008 | By katrinamckeever | Views [5859]

As the ultimate mountain bike widow there was no chance of sneaking out of La Paz without at least some experience of the death road, one of the most famous downhill mountain bike rides in the world. My options were to catch a bus down and wait for ... Read more >

Lovely La Paz

BOLIVIA | Sat, 17 May 2008 | By katrinamckeever | Views [823]

Now safely in La Paz which is quite literally a breathtaking city. It is one of the most amazing places I have ever seen and quite unlike anywhere else on earth. It is 3800meters up in the mountains, set in a valley, ringed by the most impressive peaks ... Read more >
