Parque Ecológico Yvaga Guazú - Other Activity Santa Cruz - Bolivia

This 14-hectare ecological park contains over 800 different plant species including orchids, palms and medicinal plants. Guided tours take you to an area of the park where you can observe wild animals, as well as toucans, monkeys and macaws in the mini-zoo. You’ll also be experiencing the rainforest and seeing some of the region’s most famous trees, including the toborochí – often referred to as the pregnant tree due to its bulging girth.

Parque Ecológico Yvaga Guazú is great for kids too. There’s a children’s play area and the tour guides normally arrange special activities for kids at the end of the walking tour. After your mini rainforest adventure, you can have a typical camba lunch at the on-site restaurant. Parque Ecológico Yvaga Guazú was the first park in South America to be Green Globe certified. To get there take micro 44 or 83, which both pass the park. It will cost about $3 to hire a taxi from the city center. If you’re driving, the park is on the old highway to Cochabamba (the road that also leads to Samaipata). Open seven days a week, sunrise to sunset.
