Greetings all!

Louisa asked a great question about money.

All major expenses during course will be covered. Spending money is great for gifts, momentos, extra toiletries, extra cookies from the tienda, etc.

We recommend bringing $100-150 in new-ish twenties. **New 100s May be easier to change than twenties. With twenties, it would be easiest if the bills are crisp and new and do not start with the letters CB**

If you want to have more than that, atm’s are plentiful in La Paz, and there are a few even in Tiquipaya. You can pull out either US dollars or bolivianos. Don’t forget to put a travel advisory on any card you hope to use abroad.


please let us know any other questions you have,

the I team
