What is La Paz, Bolivia?
El Alto International Airport (not to be confused with La Paz International Airport in Mexico), is located about 13 miles west of one of Bolivia’s capitals, La Paz. Bolivia’s terrain is very mountainous, and La Paz is the capital city with the highest elevation in the world.
Bolivia’s altitude is well-known in soccer circles as well, as visiting teams often say that Bolivia has an unfair advantage in home World Cup qualifying matches (its national stadium’s altitude is almost 12,000 feet above sea level.) In fact, FIFA, for a few months in 2007, attempted to ban World Cup qualifying matches at Bolivia’s national stadium, but that ban was short-lived.
