Where Ancient Traditions Meet Modern Marvels in the Heart of the Andes.

Traverse the vibrant streets of La Paz, explore bustling markets, and indulge in culinary delights that will leave you enchanted.

Welcome to the highest capital city in the world. La Paz's elevation ranges from around 3,650 meters (11,975 feet) to 4,100 meters (13,450 feet) above sea level.

The city is a vibrant and culturally rich city known for its stunning mountainous landscapes and unique urban geography. Amidst towering peaks at an elevation that defies the ordinary, La Paz commands attention with its dramatic landscapes. As you gaze upon the city's sprawling panorama from a mirador, the beauty of the Andes unfolds before your eyes.

Step into the heart of La Paz and lose yourself in the whimsical world of the Witches' Market, where mystical potions and sacred talismans lure inquisitive souls. Delve into the labyrinthine alleys of San Francisco market, where indigenous artisans proudly display their masterpieces, weaving tales of tradition and craftsmanship through vibrant textiles and intricate pottery.

Beyond the bustling markets, the cultural treasures of La Paz beckon. Indulge your curiosity at the Museo de la Coca, where the ancient uses and spiritual significance of the coca leaf come alive through intriguing exhibits. Explore the Museum of Contemporary Art, a haven for artistic expression that showcases the vibrant collision of modern and indigenous creativity.

To truly experience La Paz's heartbeat, board the Mi Teleférico, the city's visionary cable car system. As you soar above the rooftops, the urban tapestry unfolds below, revealing a blend of ancient architecture, bustling markets, and the ever-present backdrop of snow-capped peaks.

For those seeking adventure, La Paz is a gateway to adrenaline-fueled exploits. Conquer the legendary Death Road, descending through treacherous terrain on two wheels, embracing the thrill of the unknown.

Of course, no exploration of La Paz is complete without trying the food. Indulge your palate with the tantalizing flavours of Bolivian cuisine, where succulent llama meat, aromatic spices, and traditional delights such as salteñas wake up the taste buds. Sip on api, a warming corn-based beverage, as you immerse yourself in the city's vibrant culinary tapestry.
