Buenavista Bolivia is located 100 kilometers from Santa Cruz and was founded on November 16, 1694 by Jesuit priests. The town sits atop a hillside, with a view of the lush jungles all around it. Currently it is considered a tourism reference center due to its strategic position and also because of the services it offers. The town is also an entrance point to the Amboro National Park, one of the country’s most important protected areas due to its outstanding conservation value.
