Oruro

Located about halfway between La Paz and Sucre, the city of Oruro (also known as Uru Uru) sits at an elevation of 3,709 m (12,169 ft) above sea level. Founded in 1606 as a center of silver mining in the region, the city has since then relied upon the industry as the main source of wealth and employment for its population of over 264,000. Tourism in Oruro largely focuses on its folkloric festivals and performances, with traditional dress, dances, and food.

Where to stay in Oruro

The main area to look for accommodations in Oruro lies to the west of the central train station. Simple, no-fuss hotels sit on the more residential streets close to the station, providing conveniently located lodgings for new arrivals or those wanting to get out and explore the region. Farther to the west, on some of Oruro's most upmarket boulevards, you'll find boutique hotels with themed rooms and plentiful extras, nicely positioned within the scenic town center and offering good views.
