Stayed here as part of a tour and it's a nice hotel. It's a little dated but that's Bolivar for you. There are some rooms that are better than others. Our friends got room 701 and it's really nice. The breakfast was average but the wifi has been really good. Location is a couple of blocks away from the main square so it's quite convenient. Would recommend staying here.

It was raining so we've ...
It is a weird situation, being surrounded daily by all these young people that just finished their studies (most of them) and tour South America before settling down in jobs and relationships, etc… Discussions abound. Today they were French (Bretagne), Germany (Freiburg), Turkish (Istanbul) and Australia… and the discussion was about… well I cannot really remember where it started, but ...
... good and bad). Better food, proper local spicy meat stews, and more street stalls, fried empanadas, ice creams, fresh fruit juices. All smelly and delicious. There are some fantastic costumes around too. Mostly the women. They wear these really full pleated skirts, which sway as they walk, and thick tights. Their long black hair is braided into two long plaits with large black or wicker ornaments hanging off the ends of them, topped off with ...
... experience and to top it off just as we were pulling up to the lodge for the last time before leaving an alligator was right there where we were about to park our boat! He stayed around for the next 45 minutes or so whilst we all just stared in awe and took pictures. I returned to La Paz (again) from the Amazon tour and spent the night having some drinks with the people from my tour. The next day I visited the local markets and did some shopping before taking ...
