Santa Cruz

More populous than the capital and La Paz, and one of the fastest-growing cities in the world, Santa Cruz has become a thriving commercial center, yet retained some of the trappings of tradition. A tour of Santa Cruz's streets reveals horses and carts cruising alongside SUVs, and suited and booted businessmen taking siestas in the main town square. The welcome set of museums, art galleries, and other cultural attractions in Santa Cruz represent the best of its recent modernization and development, while the mix of people drawn to the country's thriving commerce make it a lively and diverse town for food, shopping, and nightlife. Santa Cruz is in Santa Cruz Department. Take stress off the schedule by using our Bolivia online itinerary maker .

Where to stay in Santa Cruz

Accommodations in Santa Cruz lie within the limits of the Cuarto Anillo, while the areas outside of the ring road remain largely residential. The north of Barrio Equipetrol houses the city's glitziest and most luxurious hotels, offering extensive lists of amenities, including popular fine-dining restaurants, swimming pools, and spas. Head closer to the center of town for more budget-friendly options, including no-frills hotels, pleasant guesthouses set in formerly residential buildings, and backpacker-friendly hostels.
