Santa Cruz Hotels

Food in eastern Bolivia is similar to that of the rest of the country, but, given the fact that it’s closer to Brazil than to La Paz, Santa Cruz offers a distinctly frontier take on national specialties. Common plates in Santa Cruz include charque (essentially a beef jerky-like dried meat, probably llama, served with either rice or corn and cheese), locro (a hearty rice soup), salteñas (baked beef or chicken empanadas), majao (a rice and meat-based stew), and fritanga (a spicy pork and egg stew). Also worth trying is churrasco, an assortment of barbecued meats.

The prevalence of international communities in Santa Cruz also allows for a wide variety of international food options, including Italian, Chinese, Middle Eastern and German fare.

There are also some supermarkets in town for those who want to pick up groceries and cook. A small Hipermaxi (Ca. Florida 187. Tel: 3-336-2684) is located two blocks from the main plaza and it has another larger store (Ca. Manuel Salvatierra 174. Tel: 3-335-4545) about five blocks south of the plaza. The Supermercado El Cristo on Avenida Monseñor Rivero is open late and has a street café outside. For organic and gourmet foods, try Naturalia (Ca. Independencia 452. Tel: 3-333-4374)
