After having spent some month living in the mountain village of Samaipata and exploring the region and the surrounding valleys in the Yungas, we decided that we had enough of the humid cold nights and the too strong sunshine during the day there and moved to the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra.
Samaipata is a little mountain village located in the valleys between the city of Santa Cruz and Cochabamba in the mountains of Bolivia. Politically it’s located in the Province of Florida of the biggest Department of Bolivia – Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz is also the biggest city in Bolivia with about 2. Million inhabitants. The village is based in one valley between 1600 and 1800 meters above Sea level.
