Santa Cruz and the Oriente: Villa Chiquitana

Villa Chiquitana

Villa Chiquitana is the most upmarket accommodation in San José Chiquitos, situated 1km from the centre of this town on the UNESCO listed Jesuit mission circuit. It is a modern hotel run by a Frenchman and the management's experience shows in the efficient and friendly service.  There are 12 rooms, but they are in the process of enlarging to 17, on two floors (2015). 

The rooms and suites are well sized and furnished. All rooms have air-conditioning, TV and minibar. The new rooms will be similar. There is both internet access and Wi-fi. You'll find an unheated pool large enough for swimming and even a volleyball court in the extensive garden, a cafeteria and a gift-shop.

What our experts say

Unlike the other hotels on the Jesuit missions circuit this property doesn't not occupy an old colonial house, but as a modern hotel it is no less attractive.  The lounge/bar area is a good place to relax after a day exploring the town or driving, and the garden with its pool, is a tempting space in which to relax. When I was there (2015), they had a little rescue deer called Bambi living on the premises - look out for this cutie!
