Incredible experience you could have in the middle of LA Paz. It was fast fun and beyond. It was the best Bolivians we spent.

The staff were excellent - very helpful and made me feel safe the whole way down. It's not everyday you get to abseil down a hotel in the middle of a city, and this experience is certainly unique and worthwhile doing at least once.

The Urban Rush abseiling from Hotel El Presidente was very exciting with good instructions and enough time to practice before you finally lean forward into nothing and start walking down the Hotel, finalled with a free fall. we can totally recommend this experience, and with doing the Free walking tour you also get a discount on it :D

After our free city walk we had the opportunity to go rapelling down the building. It was the 15th floor of a fancy hotel. With the sun out and the square nearby, it was a nice environment to walk down a building.

This was great!! Get to dress up like a superhero (or a piece of bacon..) and walk down the side of a building. My only regret: the building is slippery! It's hard to keep your fees on the side and actually "walk" - maybe bring some grippy shoes with you!
