Hotel Esmeralda

5 m uphill from plaza, Coroico, La Paz, Bolivia

From the sunny patio at this unpretentious hotel up the hill from Coroico's central plaza, you'll get astounding views of the valley below and, if you biked, the road you came down. Most rooms have balconies with private baths. Like so many hotels here, the views are amazing, but the rooms and the hotel in general are run down. The breakfast is decent though, and so is the restaurant—when it opens. They offer a free pickup at the town plaza.

PROS

  • the gardens and their views

CONS

  • the walk up to the hotel will finish you off if you've been hiking
  • the shared bathrooms can be grim
  • apathetic staff
