La Paz sits at an altitude of between 3600 to 4000 metres above sea level in the Bolivian Altiplano. It is the highest administrative capital in the world and home to over a million of people. It was also a first experience for us, being several thousand meters above the sea level.
If you ever find yourself in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, be sure to spend a couple of nights in this nature retreat. Check Chiquitin’s AirBnB listing. We had two peaceful nights in his cosy cottage, surrounded by chirping birds and beauty of the natural park setting. The family dog, Artos, also stole our hearts as he periodically visited us for cuddles while we were relaxing in hammocks.
