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.
