Due to time constraints, congestion and some narrow streets in La Paz we can only offer free pick ups at hostels/hotels located in our central La Paz pick up zone (covers 95%+of all touristic hotels and hostels). We unfortunately cannot go down as far as Sopocachi District, the southern end of Avenida Murillo, the Zona Sur, the bus terminal or the airport.
The map below shows the pick up area from where we can pick up directly from hotels and hostels. At the time of booking you will be able to select your hostel/hotel pick up location from the drop-down list and the time to be ready at reception for your trip will be automatically generated on your booking confirmation.
IMPORTANT: We can ONLY pick up from clearly identifiable hotel and hostel addresses. We cannot pick up from private apartments or AirBnBs. In such instances choose the closest hotel/hostel address from the drop down lists and make sure to be there on time.
HOTEL INSIDE PICK UP ZONE – NOT LISTED
If you do not see your hotel/hostel listed on our booking system but it IS located within our free pick up zone, please email us the name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will confirm whether it is accessible with our bus and we will add it to the pick up location list. Should it not be accessible with the bus we will indicate the closest meeting place from where we can collect you for you to choose.
HOTEL OUTSIDE PICK UP ZONE
If your hostel/hotel is located outside of our pick up zone, then we recommend to select pick up from WILD ROVER HOSTEL – CALLE COMERCIO 1476 and order a safe taxi to take you there to meet the bus. Wild Rover hostel kindly allow non guests travelling with Bolivia Hop to wait inside the hostel for our bus departure so it is much nicer, warmer and safer than waiting outside another hotel on the street. You must be there at 06:45am ready for pick up between 06:45 and 06:55am.
SOPOCACHI DISTRICT: There are a number of popular AirBnBs that have opened in the residential area of Sopocachi in recent years. Sopocachi is unfortunately too far south for us to include in our pick up area. If you are staying in Sopocachi then we advise for you to meet the bus at Wild Rover hostel as above.
CONNECTING FROM UYUNI
If you are arriving back into La Paz from Uyuni early in the morning and wish to leave straight away, then normally provided there are no delays with your arrival it is possible to connect directly with our bus leaving La Paz. Just a couple of blocks from the main bus terminal (or the Todo Turismo terminal – the recommended option for Uyuni-La Paz if you have yet to book your tickets) is WILD ROVER HOSTEL – CALLE COMERCIO 1476 which you should select as your pick up. Wild Rover hostel kindly allow non guests travelling with Bolivia Hop to wait inside the hostel for our bus departure so it is much nicer, warmer and safer than waiting outside another hotel on the street. You must be there at 06:45 ready for pick-up between 06:45 and 06:55am.
