Yacuiba to Santa Cruz, Bolivia - Border Crossing to Argentina

Bolivia travel blog by a backpacker - August 2008

Mark Berman, South America backpacker for nearly 10yrs!
When I crossed the border from Salvador Mazza in Argentina to Yacuiba in Bolivia, it happened to be Bolivia's National Independence Day. The

streets were jammed with parades, a stage, marching bands, onlookers, stray dogs and chaos. The bus stood still for 4hrs before we were allowed to pass through the town, but we did get off the bus and walk around to watch the celebrations. Most of the journey was through the night so I don't recall anything else about it except that it took 18hrs to arrive in Santa Cruz (The City of Rings).

Other Border Crossings

The border crossing at Yacuiba is 1 of 3 border crossings I have done between Bolivia and Argentina. The other 2 are at Villazon and Bermejo.
