1 Santa Cruz nightlife

Bolivia’s eastern capital comes to life at night, and in many ways is closer in style and spirit to Brazil than to the rest of the country.

2 Parque Nacional Amboró

The country’s most accessible rainforest boasts a spectacular abundance of birdlife, with more species than any protected area in the world.

3 Samaipata

Charming town set in an idyllic valley with excellent hiking nearby, as well as the mysterious pre-Hispanic ceremonial site of El Fuerte.

4 The Che Guevara trail

Admirers of the iconic Argentine revolutionary can retrace his final steps through the town of Vallegrande and the hamlet of La Higuera, where his ill-fated guerrilla campaign ended in capture and execution.

5 The Jesuit Missions of Chiquitos

Scattered across the sparsely populated forest region east of Santa Cruz, the immaculately restored mission churches of Chiquitos are a reminder of one of the most unusual episodes in Bolivia’s colonial history.

6 Parque Nacional Noel Kempff Mercado

Bolivia’s most remote and spectacular national park, with abundant wildlife, pristine Amazonian rainforest and magnificent waterfalls tumbling down from the plateau that inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World.
