While traveling Bolivia you'll be hard pressed to find a great breakfast. In a culture that revolves around the long lunch hour, there's rarely much more than sliced bread, butter, jam and instant Nescafé to wake up to. If you're lucky, and staying at one of the more modern, internationally run establishments, the bread may be upgraded for some cheesy empanadas and whole pieces of fruit substituted for sugary jam. But at most hostels and hotels breakfast is basic, save for the feast of pancakes and omelets galore at La Posada del Sol Inn. Not only is their breakfast spread available for brunch - gasp! - it's also complimentary with your stay at the hotel (a highly recommended decision).
The hotel, run by a Texan and his Cochabambina wife, is an absolute delight in the tourist capital of eastern Bolivia in Samaipata. It's a comfortable place to kick off your shoes after a long day hiking in the nearby cloud forest and their happy hour is the ideal way to toast to an impending evening out or to relax and wind down at the inn itself. Tip: the chuflays are a local favorite and their pisco sours rival those of neighboring Peru.
Still, nothing beats the greasy bacon and maple syrup you can wake up to, which, after a week traveling the country you'll be craving!
