Guided Tours

Several agencies organize trips to nearby attractions and almost every hotel runs its own tours. Local taxi syndicates also run transport to many of the local attractions and rates are very reasonable, though not up for negotiation.

Amboró Tours is the most established of the Santa Cruz–based agencies, but the Samaipata office is open only sporadically.

The cosmopolitan crowd in Samaipata ensure that good eating is never far away.

Drinking & Nightlife

At least once a month there is a live open-air disco at El Jardín, where rock and salsa play to a mixed, and largely inebriated, crowd.
