Far from the Andean peaks lies the busy and humid city of Santa Cruz where you can see sloths hanging in the palm-filled main plaza and crowds worshiping in a huge church made of bamboo.

Heading northeast by road, flat farmlands merge into rolling hills and ranches as you reach the colonnaded streets of the sleepy Jesuit towns.

Religious Craftmanship

The fine religious craftsmanship of their beautiful churches are a key part of Bolivia’s heritage, and it is a craft that you can see being learnt today by the young generation of the region so the loving restoration can continue.

Ambor National Park

If you have a keen interest in wildlife, your road journey in these lowlands of Bolivia could also take you to Ambor - National Park for a couple of days. Thanks to its three distinct eco-systems that encompass the Amazon River basin, the Andean foothills and the Chaco plain, this is an area of great bio-diversity and is thought to be home to more species of life per hectare than anywhere else on earth.
