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.

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.

There were some public work going on when we visited however this place is where you should go for 360 degree views of La Paz.

If you want to take a picture with the city behind you, this is the perfect place to do it! I went with my friends, but there were a lot of couples and families taking pictures, which are surely hangin on their walls now.

We were staying in the heart of La Paz and our relatively short trip to this site took nearly half an hour in really uncontrolled traffic (cars would keep coming to fill up intersetions as the lights turnd red). We arrived at Mirador Laikakota at 12:15pm on a Monday to find it shut!!!! Our resourceful taxi driver pointed to another... More
