Municipal de Santa Cruz de la Sierra Botanical Garden reviews
I went on a Monday when they were supposed to be closed but they were open and there were other people there also, but not many. This is a great place to explore the local flora and fauna. I saw... more »
We were very enthusiastic to go to here. We were fully prepared with insect repellend and water to go for a half day walk. Unfortunately you could only walk around the lagoon and a bit in the forest..... more »
Worth a visit but much room for improvement. One of the trails ended in the middle of the woods and the thematic woods were closed for maintenance. On my strolls I encountered quite a lot of plastic bags, bottles and packaging material, not to mention the toilet paper and napkins.
Took the local bus (2BOB, takes 40-50 minutes, look out for Cotoca on the front of the bus from any of the buses going around) to the park after reading all the great reviews. I enjoyed my visit and was able to see a couple of Caimans in the lake shortly after arriving. I also had a great ice cream and a good time relaxing in the recreational area. But unfortunately I didn't really know where I could go in the park. Some areas seemed to be closed off and the forest path got wild quite quickly and not seeing anyone else on the paths I decided to chicken out. I felt like I could've gotten lost fairly easily. I would've liked to have seen a staff member somewhere for help in this and also maybe a tip on how to spot a sloth (although I'm sure it's just lucky if you spot one) but the only staff member I met was the one at the front gate for my ticket and who will give you a map if you ask. So either a few more signs for guidance or a member of staff somewhere to give you some info on the place would be useful. That said, I'd still recommend it as a trip out of the city.
