Landhaus in Samaipata, Bolivia

Samaipata is the name of a small town about three hours east of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. It is a famous weekend destination for Cruzarians because of its tranquility and lovely climate. The world heritage site Fuerte de Samaipata is very close and Samaipata is one of the gates for the Parque Nacional Amboró.

One of the best options for staying in Samaipata is called Landhaus. Situated at the quiet edge of town, it is only a six minute walk from the city center. There are several bungalows and a huge and beautiful garden with a fantastic pool area. The hostel has a wide variety of accommodations, from small rooms with private bathroom for a single person or couple (on a tight budget), to a luxury house for up to eight people including a terrace with a fantastic view and a great kitchen. Some options have open fire places. The resort-like complex even has a cozy sauna to relax in after a long day trekking.


For 30 years the Landhaus has been run by a incredible friendly German couple. After a long period of traveling they fell in love with Samaipata and created their own little paradise. Both are artists. Helga has her own painting studio and Georg loves to experiment with metal or wood. Thus, most of the beautiful decoration is handmade by the owners and also for sale.

Furthermore, on weekends and public holidays, Helga runs a unique café with vegetarian snacks, cookies, pies and tea. The breakfast offering is far away from what you usually get in South America. This breakfast has homemade German-style whole-bread and jam, as well as homemade ham and sausage.  It makes a perfect start for your lovely day.
