Nicest bit of town

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.

This is a beautiful centre piece to Santa Cruz. There is a gentle yet lovely vibe to the place - people all around but relaxed. Many just chilling out under the palm trees surrounded by incredible historical architecture - including the fantastic cathedral.

South American colonial towns have pretty plazas a plenty. You can't compare the Bolivian plazas to those of Cuzco, Bogota, Cuena or Quito.. the former will fall short. However amongst the Plazas I saw in Bolivia, this is one that I quite liked. It's very green with plenty of thriving trees that have epiphytic plants living on them. It offers... More

This plaza was just like any other plaza in South America. Except I probably wouldn't pay to stay near this plaza. This plaza was a place to relax and had nice churches nearby. The plaza itself is great to look at and hang out in but its surroundings are nothing special instead kinda of dead. There are restaurants but nothing... More

This is a nice landscaped square in the centre were locals and tourist alike hang out and chat sitting on the benches. The whole area feels very relaxed and there are plenty of bars restaurants and shops nearby to browse

A nice place to sit and chat and watch people go by. There were some street vendors selling coffee, but we didn't have any. The plaza was full of families enjoying the day - great to soak up the sun and rest!

This plaza is the main one in Santa Cruz and it gathers many typical things about Bolivia and the city, specially about the people who sell some beverages in thermos bottles. It is nice to spend a few time there and also to see the Bolivians routine. It could be a little cleaner but despite of that, it also a... More
