More populous than the capital and La Paz, and one of the fastest-growing cities in the world, Santa Cruz has become a thriving commercial center, yet retained some of the trappings of tradition.
On the 12th (Fri), get engrossed in the history at Iglesias de la Chiquitania, browse the different shops at Ventura mall, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Catedral de Santa Cruz. Here are some ideas for day two: walk around Noel Kempff Mercado National Park.

Dynamic and friendly, Cochabamba benefits from a mild climate largely responsible for its Mediterranean lifestyle and nickname the "City of Eternal Spring." An ideal alternative for anyone wishing to escape the chaos of South America's more popular destinations, Cochabamba vacations allow visitors to discover how regular Bolivians live on an everyday basis.
On the 14th (Sun), admire the landmark architecture of Palacio Portales, pause for some photo ops at El Cristo de la Concordia, don't miss a visit to Plaza 14 de Septiembre, then learn more about the world around you at Museo Arqueologico de la Universidad, and finally hunt for treasures at La Cancha.
