We walked around Santa Cruz for ages getting a little lost absorbing the sights. The Plaza is an oasis, with shady palms and flowering trees. Polite drinks vendors. Benches for young lovers. Chess boards aplenty with spirited competitors. We unwound in the plaza and enjoyed a beer or two in the Irish Pub on one side. Nice place to people... More

I've been here many times over the years, it's in a good shopping area of Santa Cruz. The cathedral (now a basilica) is very nice inside, so make certain you go in if it is open, and they don't seem to mind if you take photographs. There's an Irish Pub bar/restaurant located on the plaza, but it's definitely Bolivian and... More

Compare to other plazas, like the one in Sucre, the plaza is pretty boring. Nothing too interesting to see.

Santa cruz is not a beautiful town but this is the exception. Great place to chill, you can also try the coffee sold by well-dressed men on the place. I hate coffee but I loved this one (which contains a lot of sugar)

The Sept 24 Plaza is a pretty city square complete with gardens and flowering trees, and several important buildings surrounding it, such as the cathedral, theatres and government offices. The square is the nicest spot in Santa Cruz. I loved the coffee men dressed in cream coloured suits and matching hats that cruise the square looking for customers that want... More

The plaza is calm with locals and tourists milling about. Traffic is prohibited; this is a luxury in Santa Cruz. The old cathedral is lovely; you can climb up one of the towers and have a great view of the city. Shopping is located nearby.

Plazas were designed to provide a spot for the general population to take time out from a busy day to rest a bit in on well placed benches in cool, shady spots. The Plaza de 24 de Septiembre fits the bill perfectly. It has the magnificent trees for shade, the benches for rest and the statues and fountain for variation.... More

I wasn't overly impressed with Santa Cruz but this was the nicest part of town by far. It's a nice little square where you can watch the world go by.

I remeber when "La Plaza" was dirty and falling apart. now 15 years later the people of Santa Cruz are clearly proud of thier heritage and have really made an effort. great place to have a coffee or an ice cream then sit and watch the world go by in its own Bolivian way.
