Santa Cruz de la Sierra - Bolivia
BOLIVIA
Bolivia is a beautiful country located in the Southern Hemisphere of the American Continent. It is divided into three geographical regions; The Andean Region (which takes into account two mountain ranges and the Altiplano), The Sub – Andean Region (which is predominantly located in the Yungas) and the Plains Region (which is the most extensive and least populated of the country).
The Andean Region makes up approximately 28% of the total surface area of the country and is found on average, 3.000 m above sea level. Lake Titicaca is found in the Altiplano and is the highest, navigable lake in the world.
The Sub – Andean Region, located between the Altiplano and the Eastern Plains is made up of approximately 13% of Bolivian territory. This area takes into account the Valleys and the Yungas (an Aymaran word meaning “warm area”. It is characterized by its agricultural activity and it’s temperate to warm climate. In this region one may find various archaeological sites such as; Supay Huasi and P´lta
Orko, located in the department of Chuquisaca. Other sites such as El Palacio
Portales constructed by the tin baron, Simón Patiño, or Pairumani, Quillacollo, the Archaeological Museum and the Casa de la Cultura are located in the department of Cochabamba.
At the base of the Real Mountain Range, to the northeast the Plains Region can be observed. These plains are extremely rich in flora and fauna and occupy approximately 59% of the national territory. A large part of this region becomes flooded during the rainy season which covers the months of December, January and February. This constant flooding forms swamplands such as the pools of Izozog. There is also a zone of the Plains Region which is semi – tropical and dry. This zone is called the Chaco and includes in its territory the Jesuit Missions and their beautiful surroundings.
SANTA CRUZ
Tourism in Santa Cruz is an emerging activity which is being developed constantly. This area also has rich natural resources due to the wide variety of climatic zones and types of vegetation. These include, valleys, jungle and chaco
which give way to several nature reserves where bio‐diversity is observed at its best. Some of the greatest attractions, from a tourist’s standpomt, are the Pre‐
Columbian ruins such as “El Fuerte” and religious sites such as the Jesuit Missions whose style is a mix of Baroque and local cultures. The living villages near this area never forget and try to conserve their past.
