In 2015 National Geographic ranked La Paz as the 3rd "party town" or city with the best night life in the world (Lonely Planet ranked it 6th in 2010) and indeed La Paz night jungle offers you a large variety of choices for fun...I don't even know where to begin...cheers! #lapaz #bolivia #amazingplaces #wondercities #bestnightlife #nightlife #traveltheworld #travelwriter #travelblogger #traveldeeper #travelstroke #instatravelling #tourguide #tourism #instago #travelbeauty #instavacation #passportready #mytravelgram #musicinmyheart #musicismyjoy #atalantaworld #connectingtravellers #travelgram #travelphoto
Alasitas. Today. Like a lot of people in La Paz at 12:00 I got my "wishes" and dreams blessed by the smokey yatiri. I bought symbolic miniatures for me and for the ones I love 'cause besides the Eq'eqo, there are other popular items or "dreams" that can be purchased at Alasitas. Some are exact replicas of our goals for the year, from money, objects, properties, degrees, job contracts, marriage or divorce certificates (all kinds of legal papers really) to pretty much any material wish you can imagine. Other miniatures are symbolic representations of different wishes; for example, the rooster and the hen: we give these to our friends (depending on what they like) and they represent our wish for them to have boyfriends or girlfriends all year long, that is our wish for them to enjoy love on the current year....so many dreams...so little time ;) Luuv this festival!! #alasitas #lapaz #wonderfulplaces #wondercities #travelbeauty #traveltheworld #tourguide #tourism #bolivia #atalantaworld #instago #instapassport #passportready #instavacation #instatravelling #travelblogger #traveldeeper #travelstroke #travelwriter #connectingtravellers
Tomorrow is Alasitas! "ALASITAS" is the aymara word for "buy me" and it's a major craft festival of handmade miniatures that represent the different people's dreams or ambitions for the year. This "festival of dreams" takes place in La Paz, starting on the 24th of january at 12:00pm and it lasts about 3 weeks. The yatiris or "chamans" "bless" the miniatures at noon in smokey rituals with alcohol, flowers and other symbolic elements. In 2017 UNESCO declared Alasitas as "Mankind's Intangible Cultural Heritage". The central character of this tradition is EQ'EQO (the chubby figurine I'm holding on this pic) He carries on his back everything a family might need: bags of food, a house, a car, even confetti for fiesta! He has the status of a "Semi-God" and he's supposed to attract fortune, fertility and joy. His mouth is slightly open to fit a cigarette and since the figurine is hollow "he can smoke". The tradition consists in giving him a cigarette and leaving next to him a shot of alcohol so he is "happy" and he can attract prosperity to our household. #alasitas #craftfestival #traveltheworld #travelwriter #travelblogger #traveldeeper #instatravelling #instavacation #passportready #connectingtravellers #tourguide #tourism #bolivia #atalantaworld #instago #instapassport #luxuryhotel #wondercities #wonderfulplaces #lapaz #wanderlust #wanderer #lovetotravel #lovebeingatourguide
Queso Humacha Sandwich: what a brilliant idea!! Queso Humacha is only my favorite Bolivian dish!! It's a delicius and thick soup of cheese, onion and lima or fava beans. The spicy stew is seasoned with yellow chilli (ají amarillo) huacataya herbs and served with corn and potatoes. It's an excellent choice for vegetarians. My mom taught me how to make a mean Queso Humacha but this sandwich at this lovely place where the service is so friendly will do for tonight ;) #foodlovers #cafetypica #wonderfulplaces #wondercities #lapaz #traveltheworld #wanderlust #wanderer #lovetotravel #travelbeauty #travelwriter #travelblogger #traveldeeper #instatravelling #instavacation #passportready #instago #tourguide #tourism #quesumacha #bestplaces #amazingfood #bestsandwiches
Casa Grande Hotel, La Paz. Southern zone (Zona Sur, calle 16) It's a very nice and modern 5 star hotel. 5 Blocks from the VERDE Teleférico Station, 10 minute light walk from San Miguel, a neighborhood full of coffe shops, pubs, restaurantes and shopping centers (more like what you see everywhere since it's the most modern part of the city) The Hotel's Restaurant Yerba Buena is one of the best in town, the Chef is quite prestigious and popular. The bar on the top floor is very trendy among locals. #lapaz #luxuryhotel #lovetotravel #wonderfulplaces #wondercities #tourguide #tourism #bolivia #wanderlust #wanderer #travelphoto #travelpics #traveltheworld #travelwriter #travelblogger #traveldeeper #travelstroke #instatravel #instatravelling #instavacation #instago #instapassport #passportready #connectingtravellers #travelbeauty #travelgram #mytravelgram #casagrandehotel
Hotel Presidente. La Paz. Very conveniently located in the very heart of the historical center of the city. Location is the best advantage of this 5 star "retro" looking hotel, right in front of San Francisco Basilica. Just 3 blocks from the main square Plaza Murillo, 2 blocks from MUSEF, the best museum in town, 5 blocks from Calle Jaén and the museum circuit, 6 blocks from the Station of the Teleférico Naranja, 3 blocks from Mercado de las Brujas (witches market) and other touristy places. The hotel staff is really nice and breakfast is superb! This hotel also offers a very trendy experience called urban rush which consists in rappelling or rap jumping down the side of the 17 story building that is Hotel Presidente. The hotel provides costumes and masks of spiderman, captain america, cat woman if you care to dress like that for the descent ;) Calle Potosí and Genaro Sanjinés, check it online....#luxuryhotel #wondercities #lapaz #wonderfulplaces #wanderlust #wanderer #lovetotravel #travelbeauty #traveltheworld #travelwriter #instatravelling #instavacation #passportready #instago #tourguide #tourism #travelblogger #traveldeeper #connectingtravellers #instatravel #historicalcenter #convenientplaces #besthotels #hotelpresidente #travelphoto
La Paz, Mi Teleférico. It's very easy to do since you just have to guide yourself by the colors of the stations, which are properly signalized, plus the staff is very helpful. All the stations and cabins are handicap friendly. It's also green with solar panels in each cabin. The Teleférico is probably one of the main reasons why La Paz won the 2014 online competition of the New 7 Wonder Cities. It's really a great way to tour the city. So far, we have 5 different lines or "colors" (yellow, green, blue, red and orange) very soon the whole network is going to be completed and 10 different lines are going to be crossing the bluest sky in the world! #miteleferico #wondercities #wonderfulplaces #lapaz #bolivia #amazingplaces #tourguide #tourism #worldcapture #worldingram #wanderlust #wanderer #lovetotravel #travelbeauty #traveltheworld #travelwriter #travelblogger #traveldeeper #travelstroke #travelblog #travelpics #travelphoto #instatravel #instatravelling #passportready #instago #instapassport #luxuryhotel #instavacation #amazingcities #amazingplaces
La Paz is a city of amazing contrasts and you can experience these just by hoping on one of the most modern public transportation systems in the world: the aerial tramway or Teleférico. "Mi Teleférico" network connects the city strategically from the top to the bottom and it's a remarkably efficient public transportation system as well as an unforgettable touristy experience that allows you to see the whole city from above, appreciating not only the social distinctions between neighborhoods but the surreal clay formations of the mountains where the city is built on and some of the highest snowcapped mountains of the Royal Range of the Andes (Illimani, Mururata, Chacaltaya, Huayna Potosí) #miteleferico #wondercities #lapaz #wonderfulplaces #wanderlust #wanderer #tourguide #travelblogger #traveldeeper #travelstroke #travelblog #travelbeauty #traveller #connectingtravellers #mytravelgram #instatravelling #passportready #instago #instapassport #luxuryhotel #travelwriter #traveltheworld #cablecar #moderntransportation #amazingplaces #amazingcities

Due to the altitude of La Paz (3600m/11800ft) some people might experience symptoms related to it. But "sorojchi" or altitude discomfort can be easily avoided by taking the simple following precautions: drinking lots of coca tea and fluids, eating smaller than usual portions of food and avoiding alcohol the first couple of days 'til propper acclimatization. Other people prevent any discomfort by taking diamox pills a few days before traveling or taking sorojchi pills once they get here. Sorojchi pills are aspirin with caffeine pills. Nevertheless, there are also psychological factors that can influence in the perception and experience of altitude. Maybe they were right when they said the altitude had something to do with the Bolivian football victory over Argentina in 2009 by 6-1 for the eliminatories to the world cup...yes we were lucky over the star team including the great Messi that historic day...and although we did not make it to the world cup it was a glorious day for us bolivians! In any case, take it easy in La Paz yhe first couple of days...#amazingplaces #wondercities #lapaz #traveltheworld #travelwriter #travelblogger #travelblog #traveldeeper #travelstroke #instatravel #instatravelling #instavacation #passportready #traveltheworld #travelphotography #visiting #tourguide #tourism #instago #travelbeauty #connectingtravellers #travelgram #travelphoto #mytravelgram #citylights #sunset #beautifulplaces
La Paz has been a very important city since colonial times. It was founded in 1548 and it was the transit point in the commercial route between Potosí and Lima. La Paz was the "craddle" of the Latin American independence since it was here where the continental independence movement started. This strategic viewpoint of KILLI KILLI was the monitoring center of the indigenous revolt of 1781 led by Tupac Katari. The famous siege of 40000 indigenous that enclosed and closed the city for several months in 1781 could be watched almost entirely from this viewpoint. Today, is one of the best touristic experiences in La Paz, the sunset and the city lights are just outstanting since the city is a surreal bowl of mountains and eolic erosion  #wondercities #wonderfulplaces #wanderlust #wanderer #lovetotravel #luxuryhotel #travelblogger #traveldeeper #travelstroke #travelblog #travelpics #traveltheworld #travelwriter #instatravelling #instavacation #passportready #instago #tourguide #tourism #worldcapture #connectingtravellers #travelbeauty #traveltheworld #beinghappy
La Paz is known as the highest capital in the world, although it's not really the capital but the seat of government of Bolivia. This is the main square or Plaza Murillo, location of the Governmental Palace (executive power)the Parliament (legislative power) the Cathedral, the National Museum of Art and other important buildings of this historical area of the city #wondercities #wonderfulplaces #wanderlust #wanderer #travelphoto #lovetotravel #travelbeauty #traveltheworld #travelwriter #travelblogger #traveldeeper #travelstroke #traveling #photography #mytravelgram #visiting #luxuryhotel #connectingtravelers #instatravelling #instavacation #passportready #instago #instapassport #bolivia #tourguide #tourism #worldcapture #instatravel
