because it's not the capital
by: Anonymous

Probably because La Paz isn't the capital. Sucre is the capital.

La Paz is not the capital of Bolivia
by: Anonymous

La Paz is not the capital of Bolivia. Sucre is the capital of Bolivia. Foreigners often make the mistake of thinking La Paz is the capital because the Congress and presidential palace are there, along with many other government jobs. But Sucre is the capital. It's located in the department of Chuquisaca.

great website
by: Anonymous

It seems she has the best of intentions and wants to be sure she does the best job she can on each place she visits. I don't know about you, but in my book that's downright admirable. Wouldn't settle for anything less, would you?

Very observant - and thanks for asking!
by: BoliviaBella

Hi Joe S. That's very observant of you and it's a good question, worthy of a good answer.

Four years ago, BoliviaBella.com began as a website about Santa Cruz only. I was living in the U.S., missing Santa Cruz like crazy, thought I'd start a blog about it because telling my entire life story over and over again was getting complicated.

For the first 2 and 1/2 years, I focused on just that: building the a website about Santa Cruz (where I had lived for the previous 8 and 1/2 years), with a specific focus on providing information not so much about tourism, but rather about living in Santa Cruz. The target audience was, initially, mostly expats (expatriates). The goal was to build the most detailed and comprehensive website about Santa Cruz for people who might want to live here.

Little did I imagine that my little hobby would attract thousands and thousands of visitors! Suffice it to say, this was no longer a hobby. People were making live-changing decisions, such as the decision to move here, based on the information they find online. That, like your question, is a BIG responsibility. I moved back to Santa Cruz where I continued to add information - first hand, personally researched, "been there took the pictures myself" kind of information. You don't find that on many websites. That's why BoliviaBella has become such a highly respected and trusted website.

Of course, as the site continues to grow, and more and more people find it, they send in questions about other places, such as La Paz (where I grew up). So recently I have begun adding information on other departments. However, unlike other websites (such as the ones that plagiarize mine) I personally visit and research everything that is on the site. That's why BoliviaBella.com is such a highly trusted website and is now one of the top 20 websites about Bolivia in the world.

A section on La Paz will be forthcoming, however I am working from the East of Bolivia toward the West. There is a reason for this. I made a very conscious decision some time ago to cover Bolivia from the East to the West. Eastern Bolivia has very rarely been promoted and is greatly unknown, while there are hundreds of websites about La Paz. Of all the destinations in Bolivia, La Paz has for decades received more promotion, advertisement, publicity, and investment in tourist infrastructure than any other of the MANY amazing and beautiful places in Bolivia. I love La Paz and the city is worthy of as much of my full and undivided attention as much as any other place I cover, don't you think? So that trip will come in time.

Our tourism page contains information about many of the areas near and around La Paz such as Coroico, Tiwanaku, etc.
