Getting Around Bolivia By Taxi

Taking a taxi is the best bet for a traveler getting around a bigger Bolivian city (La Paz, Sucre, etc.), as cabs are inexpensive and ample. They cut out the guesswork that buses bring, and get you to your destination quicker than walking. Smaller towns are doable on foot, though there will most likely be taxis available to take you from pueblo to pueblo. This option is more expensive than the vagonettas or vans offered, but it allows you to leave whenever you want, rather than waiting for the one-a-day bus.


A minimum taxi charge for short trips will be between between $0.50 - 1 (4 - 6Bs.), though in La Paz $1.50 (10Bs.) is a more common fee. Don’t expect many of the cabs to have taxi meters, so remember to negotiate a price before you take off. To be safe, call for a radio taxi, they are registered vehicles that will get a price from their dispatch office if you ask.
