Good view

Good view, near a children's museum (not worth going in, but you pay 3Bs to ride a cable car up to the higher view point). About 10-15Bs ride from center.

This park offers many different entertainment options including sports fields, an auditorium, a bike path, local lunch booths, a kids park, and a museum (though it was closed for some reason when we went, perhaps it's closed on Tuesdays). While these are nice, most of them cater more towards locals as tourists aren't likely to start a pickup basketball game... More

Worth it to Go and have a nice different view of the city- of course the best one is from El Alto and from mi teleferico. The Sky walk is interrupted for construction work, but it is possible to access it walking on the path on the main road and through steps. You have to pay the access But it... More

This is a great 20-30min walk from the central. It's reasonable steep walking so good for getting use to altitude. Amazing views! Was safe and enjoyable. We did this as a morning run during our week in La Paz.

If you want to have a nice memento of your visit to La Paz, you should have a picture taken with the Illimani mountain in the background. And that's not possible from this Mirador or lookout point. You can see the Illimani if you go to the upper corner on the left, but there is no way to take a... More

It's ok, but Kili Kili is much nicer and you can really see how the city is a huge soccer stadium (a taxi driver said this to me..lol)

This is well worth the walk as you get to see a much nicer side to La Paz and also fantastic views of the city and a good view of Illimani. Walk through the park and follow the wooden walkways. At the end there is a children's play park. It's 3.5BOB for an adult to enter (35p) and is well... More

If you want to see beautiful 360 views of LP, I suggest walking through the park and slowly make your way down the elevated walkway. I walked up through the Miraflores neighborhood and came across the entrance to the Mirador, but was very pleased with the views from the bridge that I opted not to spend a couple of bucks... More

The thing is, though the views are impressive from inside the park, they're really no better than they are from outside the entrance, and aside from the playground there's nothing to do inside. The route there is along an unusual winding elevated path, and it's a nice walk

A beautiful spot to take pictures of La Paz and just enjoy the view. You shouldn't plan on spending too much time there because it is really just a photo opportunity.
