We got in at 10pm and grabbed a taxi to our hostel, Bakano Hostal. It was Ok, nothing special but had all the necessities, and the location was perfect for exploring La Candelaria.
The next day we woke up and headed into the streets for an explore. We came across the Gold Museum, Museo Del Oro, and paid the 3000 peso entrance fee (roughly $1.50 AUD) to explore for a couple of hours. We were both really pleasantly surprised by the museum and couldn't believe the intricate detail in the gold pieces that have been recovered from centuries and centuries ago. Unfortunately we only took the GoPro with us and resultantly didn't get any good, close up photos.
To get up to Monserrate there is a funicular (train kind of thing), a telerifico (a cable car) or you can walk. We've heard the walk should only take an hour or so but there have been multiple mugging a along the path, and as we were headed up with the camera we opted for the funicular.
