TravelPod Member ReviewsHostal Las Tres Portadas Potosi
Think we were the only ones staying in this huge colonial hotel. The building has character and is based around 2 colourful patios. Comfortable en suite room + good TV with standard Bolivian breakfast included. Wifi down during stay unfortunately. Very helpful staff who arranged our mine tour through American Tours.
B$150 per room.

We watched one man prepare the dynamite in the hole then we ...
... 20 years, at which point Potosi will be an out and out ghost town, so it really is a place with no future.
We left Potosi with mixed feelings but we were very happy we did the mine tour as it was the main reason for visiting the town.
Next on the agenda was Uyuni to do the salt flat tour into the Atacama desert and over the boarder into Chile.
See you there! ...
... They will sell them to anyone.
Next we stopped on a hill for some panoramic views before heading to the mine itself. The entrance we were to use is at 4,000m, with the mountain srtetching up to 4,900m. They talked a bit about who owns the mines, and how people are paid by the load full which all sounds about the same as the Big Pit thing back home. They used to mine for silver, but now it is mainly zinc. There are other minerals inside including arsenic and ...
