Whilst I was here I signed up to do mountain biking on the worlds most dangerous road, also known as death road. It cost me $110 to do this with a company called gravity. It was possibly the best experience I've ever had. You get to know the guide along the drive to the roads. Before riding death road you... More

This place is just the gift shop for the adjoining Hostal La Posada. The reviews on here MUST be entirely commercial. Do not waste your time going to this place. Oh, and the inventory is meager.

I bought a jumper here and it was great as it was 100 % alpaca and it was fair trade too. Also I like the fact that there were not llama designs on the jumper which means I can wear it back at home .

Found the shop via tripadvisor! Altough the shop isn't the biggest one, the choice of Alpaca stuff is really good. Best: excellent quality and great prices! I had checked the whole day beore all the artesan shops in the artesan shop street and had as well checked in Cusco. Ayni offered the best and I almost emptied half their stock!... More

During each of my trips I'm always looking for a good quality gifts. I refuse to buy the mass produced chinese gadgets. I've been travelling a lot in South America and at one moment I started to have a feeling that everywhere - from Venezuela, through Colombia to Uruguay you can find the same ceramic pots and figures...

This is a good little (blink and you will miss it) shop selling small arts and crafts. Very limited given the shop size. The best part about the trip to this shop, which is about a 10min taxi ride 15b from the centre of La Paz, is that there so many other great little shops selling up market goods. If... More

I stumbled upon this little shop and was thrilled by their selection of fair trade and handmade merchandise. This is where I stocked up on gifts and could not resist shopping for myself as well. Their selection of alpaca garments and handicrafts is refreshing because what they offer is unique and a cut above everything else I found in La... More
