Internet Cafes in Bolivia

A tip: From La Paz to the south the prices drop significantly, expect to pay $0.50 (3Bs.) per hour—in Copacabana, the Yungas, and (if you can find it) the Amazon, you’ll be charged hourly rates starting at $1.50 (10Bs.).

WiFi in Bolivia

If you’ve brought your own laptop or netbook, there are many hotels? and Internet cafés with WiFi. Keep in mind that WiFi is much more widely available in larger cities like La Paz and Santa Cruz. More expensive, high-end places are much more likely to offer Wifi in Bolivia. If you get stuck, follow the golden arches, as the service is also available McDonalds.
