La Paz Climate & Weather

La Paz's climate can vary greatly from area to area, owing largely to the differing altitudes across the city. Visitors can expect year-round bright and sunny conditions, though rain can shower down during summer afternoons.

The city's close proximity to mountains means the sun sets relatively early, and temperatures can plummet at night. After-dark temperatures can dip to below freezing in winter. One the plus side, year-round temperatures are cool to mild, with the average being 72°F (22°C) in summer, and 59°F (15°C) in winter.

Winter (May to October) is peak travel season, on account of the drier conditions.
