385km (239 miles) SE of La Paz; 473km (293 miles) W of Santa Cruz; 366km (227 miles) NW of Sucre Cochabambinos are famous for their love of the good life. Their sun-bleached city is settled in a dusty hollow at the very center of Bolivia. The quiet plazas invite you to linger, and the year-round springlike climate encourages you to stroll along the quaint streets. Overlooking all this is the largest statue of Christ in the world, the 33m (108-ft.) Cristo de la Concordia. There's something very welcoming about Cochabamba: There may not be much to see and do in the city itself except eat and drink to your heart's content, but Cochabamba is a great place to relax and get to know the people of Bolivia. Or you can travel to the small towns in the nearby valleys and visit some of the most colorful local markets in the country.
