Hotel La Mision

La Mision

Smart colonial style hotel close to the centre of San Ignacio, convenient for visits to the UNESCO restored mission church. 

This pleasant two-storey hotel, well located for a visit to the town and mission church, is just off the main plaza of San Ignacio de Velasco, a 5-6 hour bucolic drive from Santa Cruz. The design and décor capture the heritage and atmosphere of the restored UNESCO Jesuit missions. Built in traditional Spanish style with columns of carved wood which depict the local history, the hotel has spacious patios with lush, neat gardens that create a peaceful ambiance.

The 32 comfortable, colonial-style rooms and suites include a private bathroom, minibar, air-conditioning, TV and telephone. The hotel welcomes small conferences, so it features a business centre and small fitness room as well as a pretty, surprisingly decent-sized outdoor swimming pool.

What our clients say

  • Bolivia - just stunning.

    PG, Northwood
  • Overall a fantastic itinerary.  Bolivia was an unknown for us but it exceeded our expectations in every respect thanks to a wonderful guide in Noel.

    SM, Wokingham
  • For both of us though the highlight of our trip was the journey through Bolivia, the crossing of Lake Titicaca and the visit to the Sun Island and then the 3 days we spent driving down to the Chilean border with the guide Juan Carlos and driver Rene was simply the best, it reminded us of journeys we made back in the late 60’s through Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran.

    RA, Croydon
  • Bolivia was outstanding and we are grateful to our JLA travel consultant for her description of this trip.

    BR, Hornsey
  • Best aspect was that the constant variety of wonderful experiences and sights and - due to excellent guides - information on history and local culture.

    CR, Aylesbury
  • Highlight: Oh PLEASE !?? How can we do that.  I think  the early Hito Cajon border of Bolivia to Sucre had to be the highlights - the Salar, etc. the views all the way, our guide must have got tired of us oohing and aaahing !
