Be part of how we the local ¨Paceños¨ live in this chaotic and unique city.
La Paz is a city of contrasts between the modern and the old tradition from the Aymaras. Considered the most indigenous capital city in South America, also the highest administrative capital city in the world. . . So you will need very good information from someone who grew up in La Paz!
