Yacuiba is a city in southern Bolivia and the capital city of Gran Chaco Province in the Tarija Department. It lies three kilometers from the Argentine border. It has a population of approximately 80,000 and lies 620-680 meters above sea level.

Due to its position on the frontier, Yacuiba is a major center of commerce. Across the border lies Salvador Mazza, with which it forms a conurbation.

The town has direct connections by road with both Tarija and Santa Cruz. It also has an international airport (BYC).


The city's name is derived from the Guarani yaku-iba, meaning roughly "fowls' watering hole"
