La Paz

La Paz, located in the west of the country, is the administrative capital of Bolivia and the highest large city in the world (3,625 m above sea level).

Connections to Peru are very good, by way of Lake Titicaca.

La Paz was founded by the Spanish in 1548, and thrived on its strategic location between the Bolivian silver mines and the ocean.

Although Sucre is the official capital of Bolivia, government office has been held in La Paz since 1898.

The National Museum, and the presidential palace are also in La Paz, and a 12,000 capacity cathedral was completed here in1933.

Downhill Mountain Biking in Bolivia

Ride down the 'World's Most Dangerous Road' experiencing gravity-assisted mountain biking with Gravity Bolivia, Death Road specialists since 1988. Spectacular rides of up to 40 miles of continuous downhill riding around La Paz. Closed during rainy season: 1st December to 1st February.


The only reason to travel to Cochabamba is to transit between La Paz and Sucre.


The capital of Bolivia, almost in name only, is in the south of the country; south-east of La Paz; where government business is carried out.

The supreme court is located in Sucre as is San Francisco Xavier University; one of the oldest higher education establishments in South America.

Founded as Chuquisaca in 1538, the city was renamed in honour of the first Bolivian president, Antonio Jose de Sucre, in 1840.

Santa Cruz

You'll probably pass through Santa Cruz if you're heading for Brazil or Argentina.


Potosi is one of the highest communities in the world, and the place to go to if you want to visit Bolivian tin mines.

It gets mighty cold up here, so wrap up warm.
