Hotel Rosario La Paz
The flower-filled cobbled courtyard alone, centered around a fountain, is worth booking into this charming colonial-era guesthouse for, never mind the welcoming rooms packed with tradition and local handicrafts. Art by indigenous Aymara people is scattered throughout, from the walls to the table decorations. The complimentary daily newspaper is a good way to brush up on your Spanish over a fresh fruit and pastry breakfast in the beamed restaurant, where you can also dine on almond-crusted trout, fresh from Lake Titicaca and Bolivian wine. The lively street the guesthouse is on, lined with bars and restaurants, is an easy five-minute stroll from the San Francisco Church.
