Samaipata/Santa Cruz Road, Santa Cruz

3.4
#2 of 6 in Outdoors in Santa Cruz
Enjoy the remarkable scenery as you drive along Samaipata/Santa Cruz Road. The old road connecting the ruins at Samaipata with the city of Santa Cruz spans 120 km (75 mi), offering memorable views and some points of interest to add to your trip. Make stops along the way, including a colossal red rock jutting out from the landscape and a serene crater lake near the rim of a volcano. Drive carefully--the poorly maintained road can be dicey, especially after heavy rainfalls.

  • For the Bolivians is charming, it's worth knowing for your site, beautiful place! Has a few restaurants around the main square. It has wineries and restaurants between the paths that give the city

  • Highway also known as the old road to Cochabamba, located to the West of the city connected to the capital Santa Cruz with the beautiful town of Samaipata, although this road has some stretches with enough potholes and asphalt, the landscape is worth, once you will reach the area of the serrania begins the beautiful, even several good country-style restaurants are on the way, personally the part that I like most is the part of the curve-filled hills, where one gets to a property that is on the same road, which is a decent calendar and evening landscape with beautiful and manicured gardens that have added to the peacocks that roam the area, is one of the most beautiful landscapes I saw in my life.

  • The road is difficult, full of renovations. It is best to order a taxi, the cost driver is about 50 us all day. Fuel in Bolivia is very cheap, most of the cars is on the gas.
