La Paz is a very diverse city and offers a lot in terms of shopping, dining and sight seeing. And it’s cheap! The perfect destination for any backpacker on a budget!
The ruins of Tiwanaku lie just a few hours outside of La Paz and make for a perfect day trip.
Traveling through Bolivia, you are sure to stop by some local markets and the one in El Alto just outside La Paz should not be overlooked!
Getting closer to Valle de la Luna, I’m reminded just how amazing rock formations can be. It’s pretty incredible how mother earth can create these surreal landscapes. It really does feel like you’re making a moon landing. Who would’ve thought that La Paz had such a conveniently located moon access point!
I always had a strong feeling that Bolivia is one of those underrated countries and doesn’t get as much “press” as maybe Peru or Colombia- even in the eyes of the fellow traveler. Also, it’s very cheap. It turns out, I was extremely right about all of this.
