TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Arenal Santa Cruz
Stayed here as part of a tour and it's a nice hotel. It's a little dated but that's Bolivar for you. There are some rooms that are better than others. Our friends got room 701 and it's really nice. The breakfast was average but the wifi has been really good. Location is a couple of blocks away from the main square so it's quite convenient. Would recommend staying here.

... really SMELLED…not to say stank.
We took off and the very short flight was without any noticeable problem and took us to Sucre.

In the tiny airport building it was the usual hustle and bustle at the recovery of the luggage, where the Menonites gave once more an outstanding performance of ...
... the river where we expecting fresh fish dinners, it turned out to another Bolivian misdirection, but we did have a delicious meal of armadillo. It was actually pretty good, though our new friends weren't wholly impressed, it's an endangered animal in Brazil, and forbidden to eat, and if that wasn't bad enough, it's also the cute little World Cup mascot. Oh poor Fuleco! We're glad to be in Bolivia. Keep your fingers crossed for a smooth rest of the ...
... process. During the course of the tour and transport I met 3 English girls, one English guy,a German girl and 3 Swedish guys who were all heading to Sucre that afternoon which was also my next point of call so I got the same bus as there really isn't much to stick around for in Potosi.
We arrived in Sucre early evening and after checking into the hostel went straight to the most touristy bar/restaurant in town for food and a couple drinks. ...
... from Germany. In addition, Tenchi’s little son Matteo, who is three years old, has come along for the ride.
We pass the three days, drifting with the river, in a mood of lazy torpor punctuated with the excitement of forays into the jungle in a small boat. The heavy clouds give us respite from the scorching sun, sometimes emptying their load on us with pelting rain which stirs up the jungle atmosphere leaving us gulping refreshingly fresh air. We wake in ...
