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.

The accommodation was basic in the extreme. We had been warned to expect it and made the best of it but oh boy ...
We left the Salar in hopes of making it to the outskirts of Potosi. Didn't happen ;0). A huge weather system was moving in so we turned off the road and found a camp spot. We set up quickly and Craig was able to get some great pics of the system moving in, and luckily in never hit us. Woo ...
... place to work. Four miners died last year from accidents in the mine, and 10,000 men still work in the mine. The mine itself sits at a further 800 metres above sea level to the rest of the city.
The tour started with a trip to a miners market, where we purchased some gifts for the miners (juice, coca leaves, quinoa burnt root activator for the coca leaves, writing paper for the children). Then we went to get our ...
