ACTIVITIES WE SUGGEST IN SANTA CRUZ
Bolivia is the country with the greatest biodiversity in America and one of the 5 countries with the biggest biodiversity in the world.
The country is surrounded by Brazil to the north and to the east, Peru and Chile to the west; Paraguay and Argentina to the south. Bolivia is an incredibly beautiful country with many different types of climates and terrains.
Along the eastern slopes of the Andes lie dense forests and lush mountain valleys known as the Yungas. Further eastward, one finds the vast, and seemingly endless steaming jungles of the Bolivian Amazon Basin. Finally, to the south, stretches the dry, semi-tropical plains known as the Chaco.
While visiting the high Andes seems to be the most popular attraction for travelers, many people consider the lush mountain valley areas known as the Yungas, and the Bolivian Amazon Basin to be the best places to visit. Besides great scenery, one has the opportunity to see various exotic birds, plants, insects, and animals living in the rainforests of this region.

Located approximately 120 kilometers from Santa Cruz de la Sierra is the most important archaeological site in eastern Bolivia and was named as a Cultural Heritage for Humanity by UNESCO. At this site there is a settlement of pre-Hispanic towns.
It is one of the most important pre-Columbian sites in Latin America. Its origin is mysterious and its importance, unknown. Most likely, it was an Incan ceremonial center.
Samaipata, is a town located near the southern entrance to the Amboró National Park. Just outside in you can see El Fuerte [The Fortress], one of the largest carved rocks in the world.
El Fuerte is divided in distinct two parts: the first part is on a hill 250 meters high by 50 meters wide. On top of the rock there are numerous and gigantic carvings in the sandstone that represent snakes, pumas, jaguars, crisscrossing geometric designs, etc. and seem to be part of an Incan ceremonial center that was active during the 14th and 15th centuries. The second part of El Fuerte the an administrative and residential area just south of this hill.
Samaipata is considered an important temple, where it is thought that here the Incas communicated with the gods. This archaeological monument is surrounded by different ceremonial enclosures and has a hydraulic system that allows us to verify the intensity of the rains of the agricultural works. Their location also allowed them to complete an astronomical function.
Santa Cruz, had within its territory an important Jesuit presence in America: the Chiquitos Missions that in spite of their age continue being the House of God to the chiquitano people, who still maintain both their European and American culture roots.
The music of the Baroque Chiquitano is one of the most beautiful examples of this culture preserved through more than five thousand original scores. These scores are the central attraction of the renowned International Festival of Baroque Chiquitano Music held every two years in the scenarios that they saw created.
The Jesuit Missions were declared, just like Samaipata, as "Cultural Heritage of Humanity." They are a sample of the American Baroque that doesn't have ruins, but rather has temples and towns that are heirs of the native-mission culture. The primary merit of these works of art is found in the effort with which the Jesuit taught the natives the hand-carving techniques that can be appreciated in the churches, as a true art form.
The Jesuit Missions at San Javier and Concepción:
Around the town, the vegetation is characterized by the surprising symbiosis of the bibosi and motacú plants. Their rustic appearance of dirt roads and streets and the large traditional houses, with adobe walls decorated with murals and shady verrandas with wooden columnades, creates an ideal environment showing the true majesty of the missions. Traveling through the low lands of the east, primarily agricultural and cattle areas, one can visit the lagoon and the dam at Sapocó where you can bathe in its crystal-clear waters.
The Chiquitos Missions:
The Jesuit Missions of Chiquitos have been around for more than three centuries. Built between 1691 and 1760, they arouse the admiration and interest of those who visit them for their architecture and as temples of the mestizo Baroque style. Here one can clearly see paintings, murals, splendid golden altars, colossal, carved wooden columns and a variety of beautifully carved altarpieces adorning the pulpits. The churches emulate the appearance of European architecture, because of the influence of Swiss priest, Jesuit Martin Schmit. As the main architect of the Missions, he worked among the indigenous Jesuit people and built these impressive churches. It is here you can truly appreciate the technique learned by the natives which become art enriched by their own visions.
Santa Cruz amongst its festivities every year carries out the Cruceño Carnival held between February and March. Its most anticipated event is the so called "Corso" or parade, in which different groups in the processions exhibit their beautiful floats and they perform traditional, taquiraris, chovenas and carnavalitos.
In the city of Santa Cruz and the immediate surrounding areas there are several local, beautiful places to be able to go to enjoy oneself with family and friends, namely, the Sand Dunes, the Piraí River, Espejillos, to mention just a few of nearby places.
It is a tourist area where people of different ages converge, drawn by the sport fields, beaches, and cabins where a variety of traditional regional dishes are served.

SAMAIPATA - EL FUERTE ARCHAEOLOGICAL - FULL DAY
BOLIVIA A PLACE FULL OF MAGIC...
On the Altiplano high plateaus at 3,660 meters above sea level, south of the city of La Paz, we will find the Uyuni Salt Pans, the largest in the world - a sea of salt, in a fantasy world of its own.
It looks like an endless frozen over lake or a white expanse of desert, and is actually the evidence of a very ancient sea that existed here. Its total area is 10,580 km2. its average annual temperature ranges from 20°Celsius in the daytime to -25°C at night; it has a typical high-mountain climate: dry and cold, with low rainfall and intense solar radiation. As a result of the instant evaporation of ground water that occurs in the southern high plateau due to the dryness of the air, enormous flat salt beds have formed consisting mainly of sodium chloride, together with the sodium and magnesium carbonates present in the original water. The township of Uyuni, departure point for tours to a region rich in landscapes, places of interest and natural wilderness areas, has tourist facilities for information, lodging, local and international cooking, unrestricted communications, medical assistance, foreign currency exchange and the purchase of local arts and crafts. Its weather is rainy from November to March and dry the rest of the year.
The surface crust is 10 m thick, and the amount of salt in the Pans is estimated at 64000 millions tons. They also contain huge amounts of boron, chlorine, magnesium, sodium, potassium, strontium and other elements in smaller amounts, including lithium, which is considered a strategic mineral in high demand worldwide. At the edges of the salt pans potatoes and quinua are successfully farmed.
