On the Altiplano plateau over 3,500-meters above sea level, La Paz is one of the world's highest cities. This makes it the ideal place for one-day tours of the surrounding sites and extreme landscapes that characterize Bolivia. If you're eager to experience the mountains in an active, hands-on way, then we recommend the mountain bike tour of the "World's most dangerous road" to Coroico. If you prefer to see the ancient ruins that highlight the region, then consider a stop at the pre-Inca Tihuanaco ruins or extend your trip with a few days by nearby Lake Titicaca, where you can explore the well-preserved ruins on Sun & Moon Islands. Of course, La Paz itself has its own treasures, including an authentic "Witches' Market", a colonial sector, and the impressive government buildings. Contact us to start planning your trip.

La Paz Highlights 

While La Paz is perhaps best known for being the highest capital city in the world, it's not actually the capital! Sucre is the official national capital and La Paz is the home of the executive and legislative branches of government.

The friendly people, the stunning mountain landscapes, and the historical buildings are just a few of the attractions that await anyone lucky enough to include La Paz on their South American trip. Here are some of the other highlights that this city has to offer:
  • Colonial La Paz – Around Plaza Murillo, you will see the government palace and the cathedral; the "Witches' Market" and the Calle Jaen are also fascinating stops in the city. You can stop by the San Francisco Church or the residential neighborhoods as well for a different perspective.
  • Lake Titcaca – Just outside the city's limits you will find the highest natural lake in the world, home to excellently preserved ancient ruins like those on  Sun & Moon Islands.
  • Tihuanaco (Tiwanaku), also on Lake Titicaca, is home to another set of ruins even older than the Inca civilization.
  • Coroico and the surrounding coffee & cocoa plantations are a popular destination as well. If you want to spend more time experiencing the flavor of their local and organic products, then we feature tours that will bring you right to the plantations. We also feature more active tours that include trekking and biking.
