At the banks of Rio Piraí, the city is the second biggest in Bolívia. The lush vegetation and small-town atmosphere surprises visitors with a mixture of modernity and tradition. The hectic city center it's worth a visit to give you an up-close look at the local ethnic diversity. It's also one reason – but not the only one – that the international restaurants are found here. Bucolic landscapes, hospitable people, first-rate food and great nightspots for dancing: this is what Santa Cruz de La Sierra is all about.
