        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.

        Surviving The World´s Most Dangerous Road!

        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 …

        ... 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 ...

        ... game with our German friend... In light of England's recent performances we didn't laugh too much when they could only draw! We decided that the next day we would tackle the infamous "death road" by mountain bike. The road is statistically the most dangerous road in the world with something like 350 people per year not making it through the journey. It even featured on Top Gear. In light of the info we were given and the early 6.30am alarm we set, we decided to ...

        ... every stab of the ice axe felt like a horse had just stood on my forearm. With an exhaustion of energy I had no choice but to admit defeat and come down. Panick stricken and upset I felt that I would have no chance of reaching the summit but kind words from my guide reassured me that there was no climbing that steep on the mountain.

        Day two and our only aim was to hike from base to high camp. Only?! With a 55 litre backpack full of gear and at ~5000m altitude this ...

        Did I say welcome to La Paz?! Sorry I meant welcome to the uk, everyone here is English or Irish and the girl who checked us in had a posher accent than me! I guess after being under the radar in Tupiza where it's a bit off the gringo trail and no one speaks English this was a huge change... Kinda nice one i feel guilty to add but we had such a good rest of the eve. It went like this: hot showers after 4 days without again (amazing), Jt siesta, me getting ready and ...
