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
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Bolivia was a revelation. I knew little about the country before the tour, but I fell in love with it. We visited beautiful towns and cities, the Bolivians were charming, we saw marching bands everywhere, ate great food very cheaply and stayed in an interesting range of hotels.DK, Coventry
Most Memorable Moment: Lunch on the Uyuini Salt PlainsFA, Preston
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
Across the Bolivian border was the long route which involved a four hour journey over a makeshift road with many potholes. However, the scenery was spectacular and I looked on it as a bit of fun.SG, Chigwell
The flight with Amazonas felt v safe. The plane is brand new CRJ200 Bombardier, the staff is helpful and v efficient and the pilots seemed v highly skilled and trained. So of all companies that provides short haul national flight in Bolivia I would highly recommend using Amazonas.JO, Borough
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.
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
Highlight: “Seeing the physical geography of Bolivia and visits especially the silver mine and the mint.”KS
Most memorable experience: “The time we spent in Bolivia was amazing, despite the altitude sickness! The Uyuni salt flat was so beautiful and all the lagoons and mountains we saw on the way. We also loved Iguazu falls and lake Titicaca.”SC, Manchester
Bolivia - just stunning.PG, Northwood
Bolivia is very spectacular in terms of scenery but both food and hotels leave something to be desired. Not a problem for us but some might find it below expectations.MW
Bolivia was outstanding and we are grateful to our JLA travel consultant for her description of this trip.BR, Hornsey
The landscape in Bolivia was more stunning than expected. Uyuni was the highlight.MO, Liverpool
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 !RH, Carshalton
Highlights: The trek and Bolivia in general.GN, Kingsbridge
Most Memorable Moment?: Uyuni salt flatsRH, Warrington
It felt like the most authentic South American experience.CC, Carnforth
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
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
Highlight: Views over Lake Titicaca from Isla del SolBC, London
Most Memorable Moment: Difficult to pick out one thing as it was all great! For me probably being on Lake Titicaca, the achievement of a childhood ambition!JS
