Food is good, and not expensive. But the show is superb. They show 10 traditional dances of Bolivia, and they are really wonderful to see. The costumes are colorful and very traditional.

We'd booked the show hoping to see more traditional dance but the night we went it was the Magical version. Very UNCOMFORTABLE straight metal chairs, zero atmosphere. Dancing & costumes very flashy & Bolivian promotional commercials run between dances. We were very disappointed. Staff was...More

Well worth an evening entertainment especially if you have been to the Folklore museum during the day. They serve and evening meal just before the performance with desert served during the interval. The food was no more than average but the dancing was really spectacular-nothing...More

I love dancing, and I find it a great way to discover a culture, so I try to visit a dance show in every country I visit. This one was great, with dances from many parts of Bolivia, beautiful costumes, some information on the country....More

We did the show dinner combo. The food was very tasty and not so expensive if you book in advance. The show was entertaining with colourful costums. The dancers are amateurs which was fine but don't expect real pro's. Too bad there was only us...More

You go for the dance not the food There are an enormous number of folk dances from all over Bolivia. The dancers perform with enthusiasm, and skill, and in addition look as if they are really enjoying it. The explanations are all in Spanish, so...More

The dance show is colourful and upbeat and really fun to watch. The whole show lasted about 2 hours and was well worth the money (£9.50) compared to other folkloric shows in South America (yes you Brazil are a bit pricey!) We didn't have dinner...More
