Superhero for a Day

A five star hotel (by Bolivian standards) isn’t usually a tourist attraction, but that just adds to the eccentricity of La Paz. The Hotel Presidente in La Paz’s city center has one of the best activities I have ever seen in a city. I didn’t take part, but I enjoyed watching the few people who did.

Visitors are given the opportunity to – I’m not making this up – rappel out of the top floor of the hotel wearing a superhero costume. It’s run by Urban Rush Bolivia with a price of 150bs. However, anyone who takes the free walking tour with Red Cap Tours gets a discount of 50bs!

If you’re not interested in jumping out of a hotel to save La Paz, you’ll be able to see the 2nd tallest mountain in Bolivia), Illimani, and some of the skyscrapers in La Paz.

You’re also able to see the incredible urban sprawl that extends all the way up to the cliff tops, 4,000m above sea level.
