Outdoor activities such as hiking, sand boarding and river rafting are popular here. The unique wildlife also attracts many visitors and here will be your best chance to lay eyes on the elusive jaguar.
In a small radius surrounding the city of Santa Cruz, travellers will find lots of cultural experiences to take part in. Next to the river Pirai is the small town of Porongo where its inhabitants are welcoming and will teach visitors all about the Camba culture and its history. In Chiquitos, six Jesuit missions that date back to the 17th century are available to visit. Despite the number of years they have remained intact and are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
