A few thoughts...... Our La Paz trip started as an afterthought, but one I am very glad we had. We had attempted to visit Bolivia 6 years ago, only to find out that the National Airline had gone bankrupt and canceled all flights. There being no other way to get to La Paz, we decided to cancel that trip. 6 years later, we find ourselves in Arica in …

and after admiring the Llamas in the foreground and the boats bobbing around on
the lake behind them we wandered in to town to have a quick mooch about before

TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Casona Hotel-Boutique La Paz
This hotel is located in an old 17th century building, but has been remodeled very recently with modern appliances. Lovely hotel with comfortable rooms and a good restaurant serving breakfast, lunch (a 4 course lunch costs 5 dollars!) and dinner. Staff are very helpful. The location is excellent right by San Francisco square.
