“One of the best and most secure main squares in Latin America”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is perhaps without hesitation the most beautiful main square I have visited in LatinAmerica. It has many local trees and vegetation, its clean, peaceful and the most important thing: secure! There are a lot of small bars around, the impressive cathedral, and a unique cinema in front of it.A must visit! when you are in Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you are for vacations or work you must visit "Plaza 24 de Septiembre" here on Santa Cruz, Bolivia it's a nice place with a big colonial church built with red blocks something that is not usually seen in places in America; surrounded by several shops restaurants and bars where you can spend time everyday after work or just for having fun.

“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Lovely plaza in the middle of the city where something's always happening. Try beating the local geriatrics at chess, buy a tinto coffee from the Cafe Ideal gents walking around the plaza, or just enjoy the people in general.

“Lively Plaza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The plaza is ALIVE, with santacruzan families strolling around, from grandparents to toddlers, young people meet , men and women take a rest ,coffee vendors pass by and best of all, on Friday night the band of the bolivian police played for an hour colorful bolivian music. I liked everything, during the day and night .

“Recently recovered by the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

In the past years Santa Cruz has recovered the plaza, adding manzana cer in the back as a secondary plaza where art activities usually happen. The lighting is good and the area is safe with fairly good restaurants. Some of which have a view from a terrace to the square. The weather allows you to dine out there most of the year.

Quite an enjoyable place
