What You Can Expect from Life in La Paz

The highest administrative capital in the world, La Paz sits on the Andes' Altiplano plateau, 3,650 m above sea level. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, the dramatic city can be navigated by its aerial cable car system. Bolivia is a diverse country with deep multi-cultural roots. The small numbers of expats that live in Bolivia generally live in La Paz or the other major cities in Bolivia. Many expats in the city are employed by NGOs or move to the country to volunteer. The Bolivian government has been implementing policies to encourage foreigners to set up new businesses in the country and city. And while it may be one of the poorest countries in South America, its rich natural resources, such as oil, natural gas and minerals, have benefited its economy.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world.

    Expat living in Bolivia can be difficult at times. The InterNations community made it a lot easier for us.
