• Consider a unique adventure to the Bolivian capital of La Paz

    2010-04-15

    When most Americans consider a trip to South America, the typical destinations include larger international cities like Rio de Janeiro or Bogota. Yet travelers seeking to gain a better understanding of the native cultures, their histories and their futures can find them in the esoteric city of La Paz, Bolivia.

    La Paz is the second largest city in Bolivia, and serves as the country's administrative and departmental capital. It is the world's highest capital city, standing a remarkable 3,660 meters above sea level, and lying in the midst of the Altiplano at the widest point of the Andes mountain range.

    For a truly cultural experience, travelers will want to head to the Casa de la Cultura Franz Tamayo, the heart of the city and home to a number of galleries, concerts and events that are generally free and always entertaining.

    To find a more historical perspective on the city, vacationers may want to take a stroll down Calle Jaen, a lengthy street lined with preserved colonial buildings and home to a number of small, but impressive museums.

    Shoppers will be able to find notable bargains on everything from electronics to clothes at local market places like Eloy Salmon, the Mercado Negro and the Thursday and Sunday flea markets at El Alto.
