SOME TOURISTIC INFORMATION THAT CAN BE OF INTEREST

There are not many tourist activities in this small border town, which is mainly used for border crossing to Argentina.
  • Museo Etnográfico Mosojñan: In La Quiaca, on the other side of the border, you can visit a museum about the indigenous history and culture of the region
  • Border: Villazón is separated from La Quiaca by an international bridge with Bolivian immigration on one side and the Argentinian on the other. Do not forget to go to both countries passport control when you cross the border—it is easy to miss one by mistake.
  • Food: There are hearty and cheap menus available upstairs at the municipal market, from about 8 Bs. Around the bus terminal in Villazón, there is an abundance of reasonably priced eateries.
  • Accommodation: There is an abundance of cheap hostels between the bus terminal and the railway station, so accommodation will not be a problem.
