Los Tajibos Hotel and Convention Center
Upmarket resort-style hotel with many facilities in tropical gardens in a quiet neighbourhood in Santa Cruz.
Los Tajibos is the smartest hotel in Santa Cruz and well described as a resort. Independent and Bolivian-owned, it is situated in tropical gardens with a huge freeform pool. We reckon that this, one of the first and still by far the most luxurious of the conference-facilities type hotels, is a good choice for anyone seeking fully comprehensive facilities. It’s a taxi-ride from the central plaza – too far to walk, but taxis are cheap and the hotel can easily arrange transport.
There are 208 guest-rooms over 3 storeys, with an art gallery on the ground floor. Some rooms on the upper have a balcony with a pool view, others are pool-side with French windows opening out on to a terrace. All rooms are spacious with cable TV and en suite bathroom. There is a smart restaurant and poolside bar. Other leisure facilities include a spa, Jacuzzi, running track, volleyball and tennis courts. In 2014 the property was partially upgraded with the addition of an Executive Club, and renovations take place on a rolling basis.
What our clients say
Highlight: “Seeing the physical geography of Bolivia and visits especially the silver mine and the mint.”KS
Bolivia - just stunning.PG, Northwood
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
Most memorable experience: “So many...Bolivia was outstanding and we are grateful to our JLA travel consultant for her description of this trip.”BR, Hornsey
It felt like the most authentic South American experience.CC, Carnforth
A highlight was driving through Bolivia and salt flats. The lack of tourists during the long drive was something else. We saw hardly any other people at the attractions we stopped at. At some places we were the only people. Truly magical. More people at salt flats as expected but still a really memorable and spectacular experience.
