The Spitting Llama - Shopping Copacabana - Bolivia

Both book exchange and mountain gear supplier (as well as an occasional information stop), the Spitting Llama is one of three English-speaking stores run by a Bolivian and her US husband. The 2-for-one book exchange is extensive. New and used guidebooks (including V!VA's) are also available. The outdoor equipment is high quality and plentiful, ranging from coats and boots to sleeping bags and replacement pack accessories. If you’re gearing up to trek any of Bolivia’s challenging cordilleras, or even just to walk the 17-kilometer (10-mi) to Yampupata, be sure to check out this shop. Additionally, check out the sister stores in Cochabamba (Ca España 615, between Plazuela Barba de Padilla and El Prado. Tel: 4489-4540 / 7039-8720) and La Paz (Ca Linares 947, inside Hostal La Posada de la Abuela. Tel: 7039-8720 / 7977-0312).
