Sorata Things to See and Do

follow us

Most people come to Sorata to take advantage of the trekking opportunities that abound in the gorgeous countryside around the village. Another option is to explore by bike and there are numerous trails of varying levels of difficulty. Horseback riding is possible during the peak season, for one or two day rides to nearby attractions – ask Emilio at Casa Reggae for more details. Multi-day white water river trips can also be arranged from the village – see for more details or ask at the Laguna Lounge. There’s a public swimming pool north of town, but it’s of questionable levels of cleanliness.

Sorata is also a great place to sit back and relax and enjoy the surroundings. The walk to the caves at San Pedro is a nice day trip, and a good way to experience the surrounding countryside without being too strenuous. If the five-hour round trip is too much you can always get a taxi, or go by bike or horse.

If you’re here in the raining season and outdoor activities are limited, then you might consider taking some weaving lessons from a local – contact Petra at Las Piedras for more info. For a cultural exchange you could visit some local kids and get a real insight into the local community.

Evening activities are limited with Casa Reggae (below town on Calle Muñecas), being the only traveler-orientated bar in town. The Laguna Lounge opposite is also open in the evenings. There’s also a billiards room just up from the plaza on Calle Ingavi.
