Location: La Paz

Location: La Paz

The Adventure Brew Hostel's newly renovated main building is dedicated to dorm beds, and just 30m down the road the original building (the Adventure Brew Bed and Breakfast) is focused on private rooms. These two buildings were created to give you, the adventure traveler, a friendly and fun base from which to plan your explorations of Bolivia, take a break from your travels, meet other travelers, or just recharge your batteries before heading out for further adventures. We have pulled together the best ideas over the years from travelers just like you and put about everything a backpacker could want from a hostel under one roof while providing the added bonus of FULL ACCESS to the facilities down the road in the B&B. In the Adventure Brew Hostel itself we have a wide range of dorm rooms of all sizes with great communal bathrooms with lots of hot gas-powered showers. All our dorms have one backpack-sized secure locker for every bed (bring your own padlock). There are also small security lockers in the office in both buildings under 24-hour camera surveillance.<br/>

Location: La Paz

Get into the heart of La Paz with your experienced local guide who will take you around to the best highlights of the city and show you what real life is like for most Paceños (La Paz residents). Begin the day at Plaza Murillo with its beautiful architecture for a perfect introduction into Bolivia’s history and culture. Learn about the current social and political situation in Bolivia as we walk by Murillo Square with the Presidential Palace and House of Parliament. We will be stopping to sample a traditional mid-morning snack.<br/>Next, we will visit the outside of San Pedro Prison from the book “Marching Powder” with your local guide who will explain why this prison is so famous and will also share a few strange bone-chilling stories about this infamous prison. After walking by the prison walls we will then head towards several local markets to learn about Bolivian staple foods and exotic fruit from the rainforest which you will get to taste.<br/>Next, you will jump into a local transportation to head towards an unknown, but spectacular viewpoint. Take a moment here, to enjoy the life happening bellow you in La Paz, enjoy the slow rhythm of the place you are at the moment. And once you have taken all the photos you want you will jump back in the local transport to reach the local witch market. Take a walk through the market and maybe you can find a magic spell you have been longing for!<br/>You will have an exciting return back to La Paz on a cable car; be sure to capture the views! We will be stopping by another market where you will have time to buy last minute souvenirs if you wish. Your exploration of La Paz will end upon our return to Plaza Murillo (around 12:30pm). We wish you safe travels onwards!<br/>

Uyuni - Colchani - Incahuasi Island - Pia Pia Island - Candelaria (L/D)<br/>Your tour will begin at 10:30 am, at the meeting point. The first stop will be Uyuni's 'train graveyard', to see the first locomotives in Bolivia. You’ll visit the small settlement of Colchani (salt miners’ workshops next to the salt flats). Here, you’ll see handicrafts made of salt, and textile art made of llama and alpaca fiber. The tour will continue onto the Great Salt Flats of Uyuni.

This amazing place currently serves as a museum.<br/>Following this jam-packed morning, after lunch, you’ll carry on to “Isla Incahuasi” (Fish Island), where you will have time to take a hike to the top of the island to see giant cacti, and rock formations made of petrified coral. Make sure you and your group pose for some fun perspective- and proportion-distorted photos, taken against the backdrop of the striking white surface of the salt flats.<br/>Then, you’ll head to Pia Pia island, to see the beautiful sunset over the salt flats. Finish off at the village of Candelaria, and enjoy the unique experience of spending the night in a hotel made almost entirely of salt.<br/>Accommodation:Salt hostel "La Escondida" in VILLA CANDELARIA - double rooms. For Rainy season ( from January to April): Hotel in Culpina or other location (No access to the Salt Hostel during these months).  If you want a private room for the 2 nights you have to pay an extra cost of 250 BS/36 USD per person, and it's subject to availability, we recommend you to pre-order.<br/>
