Nice place to visit

Definitely worth visiting if you're in the area. A great chance to see the local culture. They also have several touristy type stores if you're looking for souvenirs.

We arrived on New Year's Eve and our hotel was only a short walk to the plaza. Many restaurants weren't open - maybe because is the holidays but we found a place on the corner which served deadly Long Island iced teas. After a few too many and a good meal, we staggered a good the road to the plaza.... More

The architectural design is quite interesting, there are a visit to the tower in the afternoons. If you want a great pic, visit the restaurant at the roof of Senzes Hotel

Lovely leafy plaza with lots of trees to get out of the sun's heat for a bit. Plenty of seating all around. A big and inviting plaza with a lovely view of the cathedral. Could spend a good amount of time here relaxing and people watching.

This is a meeting point in Santa Cruz. There are people all ages talking, playing games and eating. There are also nice buildings and restaurants around.

Coming from Paraguay to be at this Bolivian plaza is wonderful. You feel a sense of community. The square is well taken care of. It is clean, the garden like vegetation is well maintained. It is pleasantly illuminated. For about a week I spent every early evening here and witnessed no aggression of disturbance. People are friendly and get along.... More

This is a major hangout for locals of all ages and you never know what you will see here. Never seen one of the fabled tree sloths though. They have made the street in front of the cathedral pedestrians-only so that makes the plaza a little nicer and less noisy. They don't let any micros (taxi-buses) around the plaza either.... More

Beautiful green space to sit and take in the atmosphere. It's a typical South American plaza in front of the cathedral, with shops and cafes around. Visit it at night and it will be all lit up. Try the coffee from the strolling coffee vendors in their white jackets. You'll get a small cup of local brew.

This square is not too big, but is a “must see" when you visit Santa Cruz... the little green landscape is perfect for relaxing and enjoy sun, also can take some good pictures... You can check if it's available to get into the church because view must be perfect... around this square you can found good places to eat and... More
