The Teleferico is by far the best public transportation in La Paz. You avoid the heavy traffic and can on top enjoy beautiful views over the city. I drove all the way from the city center to El Alto with 4 or 5 different lines....More

Use the red and orange line for best views. A must do in La Paz. There is a viewpoint right under the red line in El Alto which you can reach by walking through a market. Definitely worth it.

The red line is not at the airport. You have to take a cab to the red line, which is 10-15 minutes away from the airport depending on traffic. Luggage is allowed on the cars, they hold up to 8 passengers, so they will load... More
