TripAdvisor Reviews Buganvillas Hotel Santa Cruz
Travel Blogs from Santa Cruz
... Santa Cruz are separated by high mountains and connected by a very bad road (really bad, even for Bolivian standards), which is the reason why going by bus is definitely not recommended. The hostal owner in Santa Cruz even showed us a video recently taken by a friend of his, where a passenger bus falls off a cliff while trying to pass a very narrow road - all the passengers had to get off the bus before this risky manoeuvre.

The day before when we were given ...
... the rain started, lightning over the mysterious mountains, thunder roaring… My first South-American, Bolivian, Sucrean (?) thunderstorm. How beautiful, how incredible to be sitting here in my little corner at the window, after shutting down all lights and just enjoying the majesty of that spectacle.
I'm truly grateful to be able to enjoy this, grateful to be able to see it from this great place Ryan built, grateful just to be here...
