Prounique capital city, cheap, friendly people

Conshigh altitide can cause problems

A FEW FACTS: La Paz is the capital of Bolivia which is a land locked country next to Peru in South America. It is one of the poorest South American countries but this I no way detracts from its charm as a country to visit. Strangely in La Paz the wealthier you are the closer to the bottom of the...

“Potatoes”

published 26/02/2008

ProA lively and exciting city

ConsThieves all over the place

La Paz - Bolivia's capital - is an incredibly lively, colourful, bustling city with loads of character. From around 4060m at its highest point to 3100m at its lowest (the better off you are, the lower down you live), the city sprawls across a huge valley surrounded by massive snow-capped...

ConsAltitude sickness, hard to get around

It's 8am. Heathrow Airport. The traffic means that you've got ten minutes to get to your flight before the gates close. And security pick this of all times to empty you're entire back and check through every item twice to conclude that it was your torch that looked decidedly threatening. It's a...

ConsA little too hectic, an unfortunate combination of...

La Paz is occasionally dubbed the highest capital city in the world - this is partly true; lowland Sucre is Bolivia's constitutional capital, although 4,000 metre-high La Paz certainly plays the central role of the nation's cities. Its considerable altitude has hit the headlines of late after...

“Pazt And Present”

published 12/12/2002

ProWorld's highest capital that's high on life.

ConsOxygen tanks are expensive.

With its spiralling population of 1.5 million people La Paz has become an important stop on the gringo trail in South America. As well as being the capital of Bolivia (excepting Sucre of course, the constitutional capital) it is also the highest capital in the world sitting at a breath stealing 3...

“Bolivia's city in the sky”

published 18/12/2004

ProUnforgettable scenery and people

ConsVery basic living standards

Arriving at La Paz by bus is somewhat of a shock to the system. This is in part due to the altitude (particularly if arriving by plane which is meant to be harsher). I am (reasonably) fit, young (25) and healthy, and found it a little difficult and therefore anyone travelling here will be well...

Prostunning location, interesting people

ConsCar fumes and general pollution

La Paz is famously located at 3660 metres above sea-level and is the highest capital city in the world (that even beats Lhasa, Tibet!). Furthermore, it's setting in a crater makes this one of the most impressive cities in the world to bus into- as you pass out of El Alto the road suddenly drops...

ProMysterious, steeped in culture,

Consaltitude

I visited La Paz in early 1996 during my gap year whilst I was backpacking. Being the highest capital city in the world, altitude sickness can be a problem. We were ok, but we had been high in the Andes for a few days before arriving and when we first got up high we felt light headed, headachey...

Probeautiful

Consaltitude sickness

I visited La Paz a few years ago. The city is the highest anywhere - many people suffer altitude sickness for a day or two, although we found that it wasn't too bad when we took it very easy to start with! The city is very beautiful - set in snow - capped mountains. There are many historic areas...

Pro Experiencing a different culture

Cons Possibly experiencing high altitude sickness

We went to La Paz for 3 days in September 2006. We flew from Buenos Aires and arrived at the airport in La Paz and immediately noticed how different we felt. The air was very thin and we had to slow down. We had been warned to take it easy and providing you take the advice seriously, there is no...
