Immigration

The immigration office on on Avenida Busch, half a block from the main plaza.

Photography

There are a number of photo developing shops along Calle 6 de Agosto between the main plaza and Avenida 18 de Noviembre. The AGFA shop near the corner of 18 de Noviembre deals with digital prints and can repair cameras.

Artisanía

If you’re looking for locally produced arts and crafts then head to the Centro Artesanal Moxos. Here you’ll find ceramics, carvings and weavings from around the region, and even traditional feather headdresses and masks. If you come during working hours you should be able to see some of the pieces being created in the workshops. It’s in the southwest of town, near the general cemetery, on Calle Bopi.

Grocery Shopping

For groceries, there’s a mini-supermarket selling fresh bread and cold drinks on Calle M. A. Jose de Sucre, between Avenida Santa Cruz and Avenida 18 de Noviembre. Across the road, near the corner of Santa Cruz, you’ll find the Centro Vida Sano, which sells a assortment of healthy food stuffs.

Bird Conservation

If you’re interested in birdlife, you can visit the offices of the Programa de Conservacion ‘Paraba Barba Azul’ (Av. 18 de Noviembre, between Av. 6 de Agosto and Calle A. Vaca Diez) to learn about the conservation efforts to protect the critically endangered Blue-throated Macaw. It is one of the rarest birds in the world and is only endemic to a small area in los llanos de moxos. See www.armonia-bo.org for more information on bird conservation in the area.

Tourism Office

The tourist information is on Calle Joaquín de Sierra in the large yellow prefectura building near the junction with Calle La Paz. They have city maps and pamphlets on various activities in the area. It’s a little hard to locate – go through the iron gates, turn right, go straight to the end of the corridor and the door is on your left (marked Secretaria de Desarrollo Turistico).

There is also a smaller tourism office in front of the Campanario Hotel, but the hours are irregular.

Money

Many of the main national banks have an office on or near the main plaza. There are three banks on the north side of the main plaza, all of which have ATMs – Banco de Credito (BCP); Banco Los Andes (Tel: 3-462-3112), which also has Western Union; and Banco Nacional de Bolivia (Tel: 3-462-4343), which has Moneygram. Banks are the best place to change money, but there are also street money changes on Avenida 6 Agosto near the main plaza. Bank opening hours vary but are normally from 8/9 a.m. until 5/6 p.m., with most staying open through lunch. There is nowhere to change traveller’s checks.!

Communication

Post Office – the correo is on the corner of Avenida Cipriano Barace and Calle Manuel Limpias (Monday to Sunday 8 a.m. – 7.30 p.m.) just next to the main plaza. You can send national and international letters and parcels. There is also a DHL office on Calle Antonio Vaca Diez, half a block from the plaza.

Phone and Internet – there are phone shops all over town where you can make local, national and international calls. Internet cafes are just as common, especially on Avenida 6 de Agosto between Calle Santa Cruz and the main plaza - the EnlaceCell internet cafe has skype and a fast connection.

Laundry

There’s a laundry service five blocks north of the main plaza, Lavandería Pro-Vida (Tel: 3-462-0626, Calle Félix Sattori Romero near Calle Nicolás Suárez). They charge $1.50 by the dozen. All the larger hotels and most of the smaller ones can wash clothes for you.!

Medical

You can see a doctor and get tests at Hospital Trinidad (Avenida Bolivar and Calle Carmelo López, Tel: 3-462-0776/0777). There’s also an emergency room. There are a number a pharmacies, especially near the plaza, Farmacia Cristina (Avenida 6 de Agosto 34, Tel: 3-462-0118) is open late. Check in the window of other pharmacies for the ‘turno’ list, which states the addresses of stores open late each day of the week (they take it in turns).
