New Years in/around La Paz


Hi wise folk,
I'm new here but I thought I'd cast my line for some tips.
I'll be in the La Paz area for New Years Eve, and I was wondering if I should just hit the town, or if there will be anything cool and worth checking out in the general area for new years eve festivities?

If La Paz is the best bet, any specific ideas?

And I won't be going to CSL so no suggestions there por favor!

Cheers all

I was there for Carnival last year and it was quite a party. There were live bands all over the Malecon and people seemed very happy.
I can imagine its probably also a good city for NYE but have no first hand knowledge.

The night life is no longer part of my life, but a few years back (quite a few) my wife and I went out on the town in La Paz.

There wasn't a whole lot going on, so we went back to the hotel about 10;30, which we soon realized was about when the locals start showing up!

An afternoon siesta will help you keep up!

The party will be on the Malecon. Stay local so you don't have to drive home. Hotel Perla is a good choice. Party will last into the night so don't expect to sleep.

Thanks for the welcomes! Happy to have found this forum.

I'll definitely report how it goes NYE. Sounds like I should play it by ear and head for the Malecon in La Paz.... does anyone know if there's a fireworks display? (An actual display over the water)

I'm young enough to stay out late but old enough for it to take some effort :)

There will always be (unorganized) fireworks and gunshots.....reminds one of being in Beruit or Aleppo.

I've spent my share of NYE in East LA;)

I was hoping for the big expensive fireworks that people gather to watch
