Normal buses.. Local Buses Review

The buses that go around the city and much bigger than mini buses and the fare is just 1bs. but if you go to the south you may pay a little more. 1.50bs.
maybe is a good option to take this because there are more space for the legs, but you must know very welll your destination. and don`t try to take this one to get to el alto if you go alone...just around the city or to the south side of the city.

Minibuses around the city... Local Buses Review

The most common way to move in la paz is taking a mini bus...we call like that because they are smaller than normal buses. these kind of buses my take 14 passengers. and the fare is 1.50 bs. as you see is very cheap but the big inconvenient should be that if you are taller i mean, 1.80m or more you may be really, really incofortable.
and of course, you must know very well where are you going to get off....after the trip.

An exciting trip around Local Buses Review

There are some places that don`t have public transportation. so definitely you have to hire the service of a travel agency to get to those places. for example if you want to get to chacaltaya you have to hire a private transport. ask to any travel agency that offer that tour.
