Welcome to San José de Chiquitos
An atmospheric place, San José de Chiquitos has the appeal of an old Western film set. The frontier town, complete with dusty streets straight out of High Noon and footpaths shaded by pillar-supported roofs, is flanked on the south by a low escarpment and on the north by flat, soggy forest. With an enormous and handsome plaza shaded by toboroche (thorny bottle) trees, the most accessible Jesuit mission town is also arguably the most appealing. It's particularly beautiful at sunset, when the stone glows pink.
