Most travelers tend to pass through Yacuiba on their way to or from the border with Argentina, as the town does not offer any particularly exciting activities. The relatively young city was founded in the 1960s in response to the newly constructed railway and oil pipeline in the area. Today, much of its revenue comes from tourists and merchants passing across the border. To accommodate for such traffic, a great number of hotels, restaurants and casas de cambio (exchange houses) have sprung up, making it easy for visitors to settle in for a day or two, if necessary.

Most casas de cambio can be found on Calle Comercio, where you can easily exchange your Argentine Pesos for Bolivianos (or vice versa). Do know, however, that petty theft is common here, so once you've made the proper exchange, take care not to flaunt your cash, and stow it in a safe place as soon as possible.

Internet cafes and call centers can be found along the main plaza.

In terms of lodging, Hotel Valentin ($5 – 15, San Martin 1153, Tel: 682-2645) and Hotel Paris ($15 – 20, Comercio at Compero, Tel: 682-2182) are probably the nicest places, but there are certainly more budget options available. The Yacuiba Tourism Site has a helpful list of accommodations.

The cuisine in Yacuiba is international, though most places tend to serve typical Argentine fare. Expect to find plenty of meat—big racks of it, in fact—and a number of pizzerias.
