Gruta de San Pedro

What Lonely Planet called "hardly remarkable," had me, a decidedly novice spelunker in awe. A few kilometers from the tiny town of Sorata, this epic cave runs 400 meters into the ground and has a mysterious and remarkably large lagoon engulfed within its depths.

Mercado Centrales are quickly becoming my favorite part of Bolivia. These bustling centers of commerce pump and pulse with merchandise, foods --sweet and savory, raw meet, and rainbow colored produce.
