Welcome to Samaipata

Visitors come to see the pre-Inca site of El Fuerte; some come searching for a dose of the ancient site’s supposed mystical energy. Increasingly Samaipata is the main jumping-off point for forays to Parque Nacional Amboró. It's also a popular weekend destination for cruceños (Santa Cruz locals) seeking to escape the city. The Quechua name, meaning ‘Rest in the Highlands,’ could hardly be more appropriate.
