Santa cruz is a untouristu coty. Not a lot of sites. This was just another average square. Not great but rather shoddy and nothing for the traveler. Way to kill an afternoon

The plaza continues to impress. I had been there as a child and its pretty much the same, thought the city is 100 times larger. The only thing different that I found was the old ice cream place had drastically changed and was now a huge restaurant club.

Plaza 24 is a very nice place to be, with a very mild weather year round. It's always full of people, kids, youngsters, families, old fellows. You can spend a long time just sitting under a tree, feeling the fresh breeze, have a sweet coffe and watching or if you're up to have a historical chat with regulars at the... More

Pleasant, calm atmosphere in early evening, watch world go by, ice creams and juices, etc, before visiting church. Interesting to come in the local "winter" - nice and warm without being overpowering as on a previous visit (in March).

Nice square with lots of attractions like the Sunday market for instance. I have been there on many occasions and experienced all the changes from the Cathedral renovations to the pedestrian extension on the square Plaza 24 de Setiembre. The Ethnoligic museum and shopping malls all around are nicely designed in the colonial style that makes the centre of Santa... More

This is the main Plaza in the growing city of Santa Cruz (de la Sierra) and is very much the preferred location for shade, relaxation and general people watching. It is completely traffic free although you will have to cross roads to get to the center. There are plenty of seats and also one or two fixed chessboards where if... More

There is some shops, cafe's and restaurants around, but the plaza itself is more a place to come and relax. There's always people around but the plaza is of reasonable size so you can usually find an seat somewhere along it's sides. Have a seat, relax, and enjoy the people watching.
