InterNations — A Community for American Expats in La Paz

Hello to all Americans in La Paz! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in La Paz? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in La Paz which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: La Paz is a unique and diverse city in South America. The de facto Bolivian capital is a bustling city known for its unique markets, vibrant nightlife, surrounding mountains, and much more! With the micro and minibus services, Mi Teleférico (La Paz’s hanging cable car system), trufis (shared cars or minibuses), and taxis, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the suburbs of La Paz, which are just a short bus journey away from La Paz’s center.

Although La Paz has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in La Paz, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
