    My husband and I are beekeepers on a farm in the town of Buena Vista in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, 100 kilometers from Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

Two kilometers away is the Surutú River where you can enjoy its waters and see beautiful sunsets. The town of Buena Vista is a 10-minute walk away and the Surutú river is 20 minutes away.
