  • We liked this place, it seems lots of others did to. This is a place where people gather in the evening. Music and entertainment lots of fun.
  • Nice little plaza in down town Santa Cruz, on Sunday's there is a little market on the side of the church, you can find artesanal products, from local drinks to leather bags. The plaza has benches, nice opportunity to see the locals and enjoy the shaded area.
  • I love this place. So much social activity and many Ice Cream shops. It's a great taste of Bolivia (no pun intended).
  • A beautiful plaza surrounded by eateries and galleries, and of course the cathedral. Come on a weekend evening and it is filled with families and friends feeding the birds and enjoying the social scene
  • It is a nice place. If you like nature, you will enjoy it
