My daughter and I were making a short trip into Bolivia. Literally. Just 45 minutes from Desaguadero to the little town of Tiwanaku. And there was Hotel Akapana, with its attractive facade, and its proximity to both the Kalasasaya site and the two museums. So with a little difficulty (mostly a lack of email response from the hotel), I made... More

We arrived into Tiwanaku with Julius tours & skipped the ride back to La Paz. There are many shared taxis that cost $10 bolivianos/$3US. They leave & arrive frequently, probably every 15mins or so. Saw the taxis as early as 0630am & as late as 2000pm. It's about an hour & half from La Paz depending on the traffic in... More

My entire trip to Bolivia hinged on visiting the ruins of Tiwanaku, so unlike most people who take a half-day tour from La Paz, I stopped here and spent two nights, able to spend an entire day exploring the ruins and another in the town. It is a small farm town, but if you are lucky enough to be here... More

There isn't a whole lot to do in Tiwanaku outside of the ruins, but the town is fairly pretty. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is affordable and the food is good. would have liked to get one of their quinoa cookies.

We stayed here one night in November in order to take our time visiting the ruins. In my opinion, if you're visiting Incan and other archaelogical sites in Peru and Bolivia you really should see Tiwanaku. We found the ruins impressive and interesting. The Hotel Akapana is a short walk to the main ruins. Our room had a partial view... More

My wife and i decided that we did not want to do a simple day trip to Tiwanaku and so we looked into staying the night there. This hotel was one of minimal options there, and we were a bit worried about there being availability. We rolled the dice and just made the trip out there. Fortunately for us, but... More

This is a nice hotel. The owner of the hotel is Rosario. She is an amazing lady. Very helpful and making sure you have everything you need. She really goes out of her way to help her guests. A new section of the hotel is being constructed and is almost done. I think in May 2013 the rooms will be... More

It is important to take the time to stay more than the regular 6 hour "rush-around tourist visit" to this amazing site ... even getting up early to start at 9 am, it is foolish to think that One can take in all in one day. We were 2 1/2 days, 2 nights here, and wish We stayed twice as... More

Bilma and Hotel owner Rosario were gracious, helpful and so sweet. We had a fantastic time in Tiahuanacu. Do not miss Puma Punku, it will change how you see ancient civilzations! We were here working on a documentary for our novel and Rosario's excellent English, the hotel's ideal location and the delicious Quinoi soup were all a great relief. It... More

An incredible building just some footsteps away from the ruins of Tiwanaku. Helpful, nice clerks and owner. The rooms are simple, breakfast individually provided. Its worth to stay there a night to see the sunset, the stars in the Altiplano and watch an incredible sunrise over the mountains around.
