We went to La Higuera following the Che trail from Vallegrande. It was very difficult to get there (we booked a private taxi for the day in the end costing 250 bolivianos all up) and unfortunately there wasn't too much to see there. It was...More

The village is tiny, barely has a couple of houses. Probably most of them living from tourism. It is a place where fans of Che has to come. There are two statues of him and a school which is now a museum. It is cosy,...More

I am not really a fan of Che, in fact knew only a little about him. I was on a tour and part of it was to follow the Ruta de Che and see what's up. The village itself is small with not much there....More

I road my motorcycle to the place where ¨The Che¨ was murdered but not much to see. Unless you are into the 50´s revolution of the ¨Che¨I would not recommnet going here.

If you expect anything great about Che here, you've travelled in vain. There is nothing to be seen besides a bronze statue. We stayed at a beautiful guesthouse run by French which made the detour worth it.
