Getting to Know Santa Cruz, the Expat Way

The land of Bolivia is a cultural experience, with every day bringing something new. You may not be able to find a Starbucks, but the Bolivian coffee will more than make up for it. Santa Cruz, known as the "Lady of the Rings", is a beautiful city with a growing economy and a gorgeous tropical savanna climate. For sun worshippers, it's the perfect destination, with an annual average temperature of around 73°F (23°C). Santa Cruz offers an intercultural experience second to none, with amazing cultural and art spaces alongside natural history, religious art, and modern art. The young art market continues to grow in the city, and despite the city's growth, its cultures and traditions remain. Many would describe Santa Cruz as a modern city with traditional customs, allowing expats to experience a new culture in surroundings they can identify with.
