If you just want to relax in town, the Plaza 24 de Septiembre is close to many budget hotels in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, where lounging in the sub-tropical climate while watching tree sloths is a popular summer pastime.
When you are done sloth watching, the Cathedral is a short walk away. This impressive religious structure was built in the early 1600s and still maintains a magnificent presence in the city. This particular church has a museum containing a wealth of Jesuit religious artifacts covering centuries of mission work.
