Directions

If you fly into La Paz, your best bet is to take a taxi. Airport taxis are cheap ($ 12 dollars to our hostel) and safe. You may take public transportation from 8 am to 10 pm. The minibus can be taken in the parking lot (eastern section, towards domestic flight terminal) and will cost you $ 0.80. The minibus leaves you one block away from Plaza Isabel La Catolica, in Arce Avenue. We are 950 meters away from the minibus last stop. In other words, after a 25 – 40 minute ride, after passing El Prado (La Paz´s Boardwalk,) the minibus will go down Avenida 6 de Agosto and turn left on Pedro Salazar, heading towards Plaza Isabel La Catolica. Ask driver to drop you off before the minibus turns left (corner of Pedro Salazar and Avenida 6 de Agosto.) But be warned: at 3,600 meters above sea level, going up steep streets may be exhausting. But if you are willing and able, then go up Pedro Salazar Street, pass a large Plaza Abaroa, keep going up on same street for 5 blocks until street ends (intersection with Avenida Ecuador.) Turn left on Avenida Ecuador. After two blocks, you´ll pass another Plaza España. Once you pass Plaza España, you are two blocks away. Keep going straight on same street (it changes names from Ave. Ecuador to Victor Sanjinez street, but they are one and same street.) Pass Vincenti Street. Walk 50 meters and we are the house with Mission style window openings on the front wall, ? 2865 on curb in left side.

If you arrive by bus to the Bus Terminal, designed by famous French architect Gustave Eiffel (designer of the Eiffel tower,) the best way again is to take a taxi. It will cost you $ 3 – 3.50 dollars, depending on your arrival time. But if you want to take a minibus, you need to step out of station and take a right down Calle Uruguay, a very steep street. But since you are going down, it’s easy. Go all the way down (200 meters) until you arrive at a large and busy avenue (Ismael Montes Avenue.) This avenue cuts all the way across La Paz. It changes names several times, ultimately becoming Avenida Arce. Once you arrive there, you must cross the street and take a minibus going south (down slope.) The minibus must say “Plaza España.” This minibus will cost you $ 0.30 and leave you either a block away, or just in front of our hostel, depending on the bus line. If minibus turns right on Calle Vincenti, get off on corner of Vincenti and Victor Sanjinez and walk 50 meters on Victor Sanjinez, on left curb..
