Regional park "Lomas de Arena"

The regional park Lomas De Arena  was created on September 7, 1990 by Supreme Decree No. 22911

The whole park  has a surface of 13,326 hectares or 133.26 Km2

The Regional park Lomas de Arena  is in the following coordinates; 17 ° 57'07 "S 63 ° 09'09" W

The park has private properties dedicated to livestock and country houses of rest for the owners who

live and work in the city of Santa Cruz It has an  interpretation center with the necessary infrastructure to be the starting point of some activities like eco-tourism or didactic. But unfortunately it does not work regularly.

The main activities carried out in this park  is hiking and / or sandbording.

The main  attraction for locals at the Lomas de Arena was  a lagoon which used to be at the center of the main sand dunes. Now not even in the rain season it has water. 

Camping could be allowed  in the area. You should ask first to the park rangers at the entrance gate. And you must bring all your own equipment. As it is a protected natural area, Hunting, fishing and fires are prohibited and you must respect nature and keep the area clean. What you unpack in you must pack out,including any trash you generate while you are there.

It is sad to see the  negligence on waste handling. Most of times on top of the sand dunes are plastic bottles and beer cans thrown on top of the dunes are common. Many city visitors do not have the education necessary to know how to handle the waste or are not enough trash cans. The park administration needs to give written recommendations  to visitors on this aspect. 

 There is an entry fee to the park of 10 BoB or almost 2 USD per person

Las Lomas de arena  are about 17 km from the center of the city of Santa Cruz .. But it is necessary to take into account that the last 6 or 7 kms are very sandy.

Very close to the  dunes there is a hotel or lodge type. This place does not work regularly.
