  • The Botanical Garden is on the road to Cotoca, on the right, just before a toll. Buses frequently leave from the wells market (corner of Barron and Suarez Arana). The ticket price is less than $ 0.5. The garden is open every day of the week and access costs $ 1.5, which includes a free map. The campus is huge and you can walk several hours through countless paths. From the Belvedere begins a long little frequented ecological trail where you can see monkeys, sloths, badgers and many butterflies among a lush flora. Failure to improve the instructions. You must carry water and anti-mosquito repellent.

  • it is a nice and huge place to walk or have some fresh air. Only there are too many mosquitoes.
  • A beautiful place to share with nature and have a long stroll.
  • Nice walking.
  • A very nice place to spend with the family. It has churraqueras. Soda machines to 5 bolivianos. And very wide to get lost you have to be careful

  • Points in favor: economic price of 10 Bs near the city. Points against: missing signs and garden, for any questions or support staff. In one of the paths I saw a tree fallen carrying days as well, uncomfortable to cross. For now, it is not recommended.

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.
