Travel Blogs from Tarija

Finally, some wine!

A travel blog entry by carille_emma

I went to Tarija because I was curious to try some Bolivian wine and I finally succeeded! Because of the blockades (apparently now the teachers are striking) the wine tours were cancelled until today. Finally this morning, just before I have to take the overnight bus to Sucre, the vans were able to get out and we went with our driver and tour guide …

Why is Javier smiling?

Having the reigns passed down by his father, Javier spends his days running his family's winery and teaching his young son, Joselito, the family trade. The Casa de Vinos is located in San Lorenzo, a short taxi ride from Tarija, our last stop in …

... awhile ago, meatballs on chips, yeah more chips. When we got back everyone was tired and not really up for an early morning, so the wine tour was off unless we could find an afternoon tour. Today we woke late and had a long breakfast before checking out and heading into town to find out more about the wine tours. We found a really helpful lady at another tourist information office on the main square who spoke a little English and put us on the right track. All we had to do ...

... but quite sweet. Not sure I will be drinking a lot of Bolivian wines while I'm here. Then we went onto a ravine, where you could see the split in the side caused by an earthquake, making a space for a river to flow between. The last winery was the oldest and the wines were the worst. They were either sickly sweet or disgustingly vinegary. Not my fancy at all but the building wax pretty. A really old mud brick house that had been standing for a really long time, complete with open fire ...

Tarija, Bolivia

A travel blog entry by beccie_andy


... Still, we had now arrived in Tarija! We had heard varying things about Bolivia, some quite off-putting, so we weren't sure what to expect. Tarija turned out to be a quiet little town that prides itself on its steak and wine. However, it also sees itself as belonging to Argentina so we got the feeling that we maybe weren't seeing the real Bolivia just yet. We spent the next day unsuccessfully trying to find a tour agency so that we could book our salt flats tour, however the ...

    Hostal Carmen is more like a hotel and it was a fabulous place to stay. I got my own room with a private bathroom for Bs100, and I probably could have bargained to pay less. The hostel was clean and very welcoming. Breakfast was included and was buffet style with bread, fruit and cereal. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.

    We were thrilled to find this. The price matched our budget and we got a private room and bathroom. The breakfast was a nice change from the usual bread and butter.
