Shopping

Av René Moreno is a good place for general souvenirs. Wood carvings from the tropical hardwoods morado and the more expensive guayacán are unique to Santa Cruz. Relief carvings on tari nuts make good, portable souvenirs. Locals also make beautiful macramé llicas (root-fiber bags). Note that prices are much higher here than in La Paz for llama- and alpaca-wool goods.
