Due to the paucity of cities listed for this <b>SOUTH AMERICA</B> country, I will certainly begin with a brief section on <font color="orange"><b><i>SANTA CRUZ</i></b></font> whose emblem as one of the <B>STATES</b> of <font color="blue"size=+2><b>BOLIVIA.</b></font> is seen above.
By the end of this journey, you may be enticed into visiting this very poor country, with an average income less than $3000.00 USD per annum.
Santa Cruz has long been reputed to be a drug trafficking center, but this is apparently on the wane. It's now enjoying something of an agricultural boom.
Over the past four decades,this big city near the edge of a retreating wilderness has mushroomed from a backwater cow town of 30,000 to its present position as Bolivia's second-largest city, with a population of over 1 million.
Though growth continues at a phenomenal rate, this cosmopolitan city retains traces of its dusty past. A hub of trade and transport, it has direct flights to Miami and Europe, but forest-dwelling sloths still hang out in the main plaza.
Visitors enjoy the tropical ambiance and frontier feel, and use the city as a base for exploring nearby rain forests and 18th-century Jesuit missions.
All of the statistical information essential to gaining an understanding of this country already appear on the Country page and shall not be repeated here.
