Samaipata Wedding Photographer

Elopement Wedding in Samaipata

Hello friend, chances are you were searching for a wedding photographer in Samaipata and found us here. For us, each couple is a friend and not a client.

Samaipata or Samaypata (Quechua samay to rest, pata elevated place / above, at the top / edge, bank (of a river)) is a small location in the Florida Province of the Santa Cruz Department in Bolivia. With its delightful subtropical climate and an altitude of 1600–1800 m it tempts foreigners to settle. The little village is a kind of microworld where now about 25 nationalities live together in harmony and peace. It lies about 120 kilometers to the southwest of the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in the foothills of the Andes on the way to Sucre. It is a popular resort for inhabitants of Santa Cruz due to its much cooler climate. As such, there is regular bus and taxi service to Santa Cruz. The town is small with numerous colonial buildings and narrow cobbled streets. There is a good range of hotels and restaurants to suit all budgets. There are numerous tour agencies and guided tours operators. International as well as local tourism makes this into one of the few "boom" towns of the area. It is strategically located near several tourist attractions such as El Fuerte de Samaipata, the Amboro National Park, El Codo de los Andes, Cuevas waterfalls, vineyards, rapids and lagoons, as well as well-preserved colonial towns such as Vallegrande, Pampagrande, Postervalle, Santiago del Valle, Pucara, and others. It is also the first stop in the several tourist trails to Sucre, Potosi, and the Che Guevara route. Samaipata is an ideal destination for those looking for a cozy place to relax and dream in the open air, enjoy the warmth of its people or go out in search of adventure in the different natural attractions of its surroundings.
