Tarija and its surroundings
Arriving in Tarija
On the way out of the Cordillera de Sama, there are impressive views of the villages of San Lorenzo, Rancho Norte, San Mateo and the city of Tarija in the distance.
I spent a lot more time in Tarija than I expected. In fact, at the beginning of my stay in the city, I had a small accident with the camera and it fell out of my bag. Unfortunately, the lens broke and I couldn't get it fixed. So I ordered a new one from home in Quebec.
The shipment was still quick and trouble-free, but I had to wait three weeks between the initial purchase and the arrival of the lens at the campsite where I was staying.
I walked around the city on a few occasions...
Tarija - Museo de Arqueología y Paleontología
This small museum in the centre of Tarija contains authentic ancient bones.
Tarija - Camping at La Cúpula Hostel
I waited for my new camera lens for three weeks at this little campsite. My hosts, Fernanda, Pablo and their daughter Fiorella were very friendly and welcoming.
I also met two nice Argentineans who came to volunteer at the hostal for a few weeks.
Chorros de Coimata
Here are some nice waterfalls to visit around Tarija. In the dry season, the water flow is low, but they are still quite nice.
