Investigate the unique landscapes, architecture and people of Altiplano, by taking a little road trip to a number of the other population centers in and around Apolo.
Every destination has its special history and Altiplano has its own stories to tell. The traditional villages in these parts provide a fascinating window on the past.
Should you hear the call of the wild, do as the locals do and go mountain climbing and four-wheel driving.
Learning a few common Spanish words and phrases can make the difference between a simple vacation and a journey into the rich psyche the Altiplano region. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" means "Would you like to dance with me?" You'll also realise that using "Este caballero pagará por todo", which means "This gentleman will pay for everything", can be very handy.
Much of the region celebrates Independence Day on the 6th of August, so be prepared for changes to visitor attraction opening hours and increased demand for transport.
You'll hate to bid "Adiós" (farewell) to this interesting area.
