TripAdvisor Reviews House Inn & Suites Santa Cruz
Travel Blogs from Santa Cruz
We saved a few hundred $$$ on flights, by getting buses from Bouzios, Brazil to Santa Cruz, Bolivia. We spent over 50 hrs on buses and a night at a border town, but the whole journey wasn't too bad. The route was, Bouzios - Rio, Rio - Campo Grande, Campo Grande - Corumba, Corumba - Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz - Lapaz. Not a lot about the trip that's worth making the journal.

Sure the dust and exhausts fumes would be streaming in my window during the trip, but iŽd least IŽd be cool and have constant ...
... piece of what looked like carpet on top. When Georgie asked what this was, he said an extra seat! So, so funny. And true enough, later on a woman came on the bus, but she rejected this bin seat and just sat in the aisle halfway down the bus. So funny. Unfortunately the bus was so hot we kept the window open the whole time, but it was so dusty! You could draw on the inside of the window! Poor Georgie really suffered as she is ...
