Heading into La Paz from the airport, the city’s main thoroughfare changes names several times: Avenida Ismael Montes, Avenida Mariscal Santa Cruz, El Prado, Avenida 16 de Julio, and Avenida Villazón. The street, a colorful blur of trees, flowers, and monuments, is often clogged with pedestrians and vendors, especially on weekends. On Sunday it’s blocked off to traffic completely. At the end of the Prado, the street splits into Avenida 6 de Agosto and Avenida Arce, which lead to the residential areas of San Jorge and Sopocachi, where many of La Paz’s bars and restaurants are located. Continue down the hill on 6 de Agosto and you will eventually reach Obrajes and the Zona Sur.
