For the archeologists at heart, you'll want to make this day trip. Tiahuanaco is about 45 miles from La Paz. The scenery on the way there is very peaceful and if you are lucky you can spot Llamas, Alpacas and Vicunas! I highly recommend going in the morning so you can take your time walking through the ruins and the museum that is ever growing (they're not done diggin!) Tiahuanaco is a great place for pictures! Especially after you learn about the history behind the "Monolitos" , temples, "La Puerta del Sol" and much more...truly impresive! I would love to go into detail but again this is something you must experience first hand.
I dont however recommend staying overnight, you can view the entire ruins in just a few hours and there is really not much else to do, but there are hotels in the area.
