Andean Comfort in La Paz
Hotel Rosario was the perfect place for my colleagues and I to recover from a red-eye and adjust to the altitude before heading down to Caranavi to visit coffee producers. On a busy commercial thoroughfare near the Witches Market, the hotel exudes calm without being boring. The rooms are decorated with interesting textiles and there are creative common spaces like this cafe/bar on the top floor where there's a bit of a backpacker vibe (think free library and a bar stocked with Pacena beer). The staff is helpful, arranging rides and making sure that your stay is comfortable . There's also a restaurant with a bountiful breakfast spread and full service dinner. The trip back and forth to Caranavi was long and rugged but we were able to recharge and relax at Rosario with just the right amount of pampering -- good food, comfy beds, and plenty of coca tea.
