Parque El Arenal, Santa Cruz

1.0
#11 of 11 in Parks in Santa Cruz
Locals and tourists alike enjoy the laidback atmosphere at Parque El Arenal, a vibrant public park with a popular lagoon at the heart of the city. Look for the mural by famed Bolivian artist Lorgio Vaca representing his vision of modern day Santa Cruz as well as its history, located on an island in the middle of the lagoon. While the park gives off a friendly vibe during the day, beware of the potential for crime in the area as the day gets darker. Put Parque El Arenal on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Santa Cruz holiday planner.

  • pretty much a zoo without a bit of greenery and animals don't seem to clearly feel good in this place, not recommended

  • Normal Park. Many pigeons. = Pigeon dirt. Just that kids love chasing doves. For those who are near the square on September 24 it's worth taking a little jump. Are 4 blocks away. Has no bathrooms for being public.

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.
