Travel Blogs from Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz..not much to do here.

A travel blog entry by kellyham

We took a short flight over from Sucre to Santa Cruz (30 minutes). Everyone's been getting the stomach bug lately and it's still bouncing around. We went for a short walk to the square and went for lunch and then afterwards a few people went to the local market and that was pretty much the extent of the city. Santa Cruz is a very modern city and …

Through Hell to a Holy Place

... later, we´re back on the road.

Unfortunately, in the following 3 hours, we travel around 70 miles and have to get off the bus a further 4 times. Only once, did we have our passports stamped with an official entry stamp. The other times, all on the same stretch of road, we´re identical. I did note that there was hardly any traffic on this road and so maybe all these military guys were a little bored and so enjoyed engaging with a new bus that came past but I was left ...

Back to the jungle

... whenever he wanted (if you dont give it too him he will only go steal it off another weaker monkey). He gets really angry if you greet some of the caged monkeys too loudly, especially baby and edwin, and wills tart attacking them so I had to be a little cautious with that. Pepa had had her baby a few days before and it was so tiny clinging to her back.
That done I went to find everyone else to say hi and then have a beer and a catch up with everyone. Jack told me the plan ...

Santa Cruz

A travel blog entry by kat_mc


I haven't got much to say about Santa Cruz to be honest. That's not to say much about the town, just that i did not see much. I arrived at the hostel at basically midnight after 24 hours of airports and planes plus maybe side effects from these anti malarial tablets left me feeling sleepy as!* I didn't stir until almost midday (tho dont judge- that's really only 9am Vancouver time). I then set out to find breakfast (more on that in a sec), to then remember that it ...

Santa Cruz and Samaipata

A travel blog entry by candcthai


... stung by these vicious Bolivian insects! The weather improves somewhat so we decide to visit El Fuerte. As is often the case, debate continues as to the purpose/ age/ significance of El Fuerte. Whatever the age and purpose, it is quite an impressive site. Lots of zoomorphic carvings of serpents and pumas etc and it is all quite nicely laid out. Some say there is evidence of Inca activity, some argue that carbon dating put human habitation at some 1500bc. More recently, new ...

Nice hotel

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.
