    Lovely hostel

    We stayed in Bacoo 2 times during our visit to Bolivia. It has almost everything you need to feel comfortable and to relax after a long and uncomfortable bus trips through and around Bolivia. The only thing lacking is the common kitchen for those who want to cook on their own.

    It is pretty close (10 minutes walk) to La Paz main bus terminal, as well as to the centre with shops and restaurants. Stuff is amazing, especially Isabel who is dedicated to her work and to the guests.

    There is a lovely court yard with the bar and dining room at the centre and different types of rooms around this lovely courtyard. Rooms are all clean, 4-5 common showers with hot water so you need not wait for the cabin however full is the hostel, toilet boxes supplied with soap and toilet paper, all clean and well organized. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and would stay there again.

    Bit tacky, wannabe party hostel

    Room was ok but a bit tacky without a proper lock on the door, and there was a decent bar serving some food with a tatty pool table and a travel agency in the lobby, however everything felt a bit run down and empty.

    When Maria got back fro Tihuanaco, Jorgen was feeling a little better! Time to share the experience from the site! Beautiful fotos! We decided to stay 2 nights more just for Jorgen to get better and to see more from La Paz. We still had to buy a new daypack for Maria and we are now looking for outdoor equipment such as a tent, a stove sleeping mats …

    With Jorgen sick in bed it was up to Maria to discover the ancient but so important site of Tiwanaku (or Tihuanaku). Historically this site is dated before the time of the Incas and it seems again that those profited from the developments of earlier cultures. However, the excavation on that historical site will discover much more in the next years …

    La Paz je, kao sto sam vec jednom negde komentarisala, ostavio utisak cudne i ruznjikave prestonice. Guzve, stari autobusi i kamioni koji ostavljaju duge repove dima i smrada, poluzavrsene kuce koje se nizu u visinu obliznjih brda, prenaseljeljenost i manjak urbanog planiranja... Sam centar ima sarma, kolonijalnih crkava i gradjevina, ali grad kao …

    For any of you who have seen the Top Gear Bolivia special, I need not explain this too much.

    A 70km stretch of road from La Paz to Coroico. Legendary for the simple fact that the road doesn´t measure more than 3-4m wide in most places, with a sheer 1000m drop. Since the 1990s, this road has become a tourist attraction for those looking …

    ... 241;a lady, they weren't as good as our ones in Tarija, but they were still pretty tasty. From the square we made our way to the tourist shopping area to have a look around at all the alpaca clothing. Luckily we didn't have a lot of money on us so we refrained from buying anything, we have time for that another day. Chris was starting to get hungry so we headed back to the market to see what else had opened and found ourselves eating yet another pique. Our next plan was to find ...
