Fuerte de Samaipata Tours

On a Bolivia tour, visit the unparalleled archeological site, Fuerte de Samaipata. Samaipata is divided into two distinct parts and is dominated by an enormous carved rock that is an homage to the pre-Hispanic culture, traditions, and beliefs of the people that once thrived here. The ancient city is separated into the hill, believed to have been the ceremonial center, and to the south, the residential area. Fuerte de Samaipata is a Bolivian national treasure and pride and attests to the extraordinary urban planning, architectural, and artistic skills that the pre-Columbian civilizations possessed. The nearby town of Samaipata, in the Santa Cruz region, is within walking distance of the ruins. You can also take taxis or even ride motorbikes in the area. The town offers some pleasant cafes, which even have WiFi, despite the remoteness of the area. The hike to the Samaipata pueblo is about a 16 km round-trip. There also are hikes in Amboro Park, where guides are recommended.
