Tucked into the foothills between the Amazon Jungle and the Andes Mountain, is the delightful oasis of Samaipata. This is one of the prettiest small towns in all of Bolivia and possibly has the best climate, too. Samaipata might not be a lesser known, remote village for long! This little place is truly a gem worth spending a week exploring. There are plenty of hotels and Internationals restaurants for every budget, too.

Cagliari, Italy

Set on the Cordillera Oriental, Samaipata is a small city in the Florida Province of the Santa Cruz Department that is quickly becoming more popular with travelers. The climate is subtropical which means it is not nearly as hot as the Amazon nor as cold as the rest of the Andes. Lots of people from Santa Cruz go here for holidays as the weather is much more pleasant. Among the highlights of the area, there are the Che Guevara trail and the pre-inca site El Fuerte. A pretty place to visit.

The rural village of Samaipata is really beginning to make a name for itself amongst travellers in Bolivia, with its idyllic location at the foothills of the Cordillera Oriental. The surrounding area is great to explore, with some excellent hiking in the region. The main reason for visiting here though, is for the mystical pre-Inca site, El Fuerte. A boom in tourism has paved the way for stylish restaurants and hotels to open in the area, but the village of Samaipata has still managed to maintain its charm.

Nairobi, Kenya

A hip town. A mixture of expats, local artists, and entreprenuerial tour guides. The town has an old colonial feel, with some great restaurants the local expats have put together. Hang out on the plaza, go find the German restaurant, and windwos shop at all the craft stores while you organize your trip into Amboro National Park.

Wonderful town about 3 hours from Santa Cruz. It is nestled in the Bolivian Andes and has a near perfect climate, not too hot not too cold. Make sure to go to El Fuerte, a massive precolombian ruin about 30 minute taxi ride from Samaipata. Also sign up for one of the many day tours visiting nearby econdestinations like the giant fern forest, las cuevas, and Parque Amboro.
