Santa Cruz Bolivia Santa Cruz travel Bolivia tours Bolivia information about trips hotels and Amazon lodges in Bolivia Santa Cruz:


The radiant blinks of the sun get lost in a horizon that has become gray and somber; then, the sky is occupied by vanguards of black, irritable clouds, about to explode in millions of refreshing drops. Rain aroma in the banks of a river of restless waters. Storm premonition in the lands of the infinite greenery.

The rain does not threat to anybody. The children play, jump and laugh, while the adults "attack" succulent plates of "majao" (rice, dry meat and paprika) or locro (soup with rice and hen). The afternoon perspires heaviness and fatigue in the Cabins of Piraí, one of the many charming corners in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, the tropical paradise of Bolivia.

Forest, rivers and prairies. Hallucinated places of exuberant vegetation, rural and suffocating corners conform the territory of the department of Santa Cruz de la Sierra located in the oriental part of Bolivia. Its capital -of the same name- was founded in 1561 by the Spanish captain Ñuflo de Chávez.

Until the 17th century, the city was flanked by not evangelized native groups; for what became the starting point of the missionary Jesuit expeditions that sought to catechize the inhabitants of the areas of Moxos and Chiquitos.

Prosperous city of modern shades, Santa Cruz (437 m.a.s.l.) has become the economic heart of the country. Thousands of Bolivians decided to tempt fortune in the hot Orient attracted by the vertiginous commercial and agricultural development... and the borders extended and the old urban helmet was surrounded by showy buildings and very transited avenues.

Sensual and festival. Warm, modern and agitated. That is Santa Cruz de la Sierra, the tropical paradise of Bolivia.
