Sucre

This city is so picturesque. With its colonial style buildings, Sucre has a charm of its own. If you have the time, you absolutely have to come here to enjoy the architecture, appreciate Bolivian history, and try the many traditional dishes that come from here.

How to get here

The easiest way to get to Sucre is to fly in from Cochabamba, Santa Cruz or La Paz. Alternatively, you can also come here from Cochabamba by private taxi or bus - the drive takes about 6 hrs and is very scenic.

Things to do

The reason why people come to Sucre is to visit the old town. We suggest you do exactly that. Enjoy the vibe of the city, and make sure you pass by the Iglesia de San Felipe Neri (go directly up to the rooftop!), walk up to La Recoleta, and visit the Casa de la Libertad.

How to get around

The center of Sucre is relatively small. You will be able to walk pretty much anywhere. In case you decide to go somewhere further, take a taxi.

How it fits into your itinerary

Sucre could be a great option to visit after the wedding in Cochabamba. You can either fly here or come by private taxi (or bus).

We recommend you stay in Sucre for at least 2 full days.

After Sucre, we recommend you head to Potosi, which is about 3 hours away by bus or private taxi.

La Taverne

This one really surprised us. Very good quality and lots fo good French options..

El Huerto

A Bolivian place that has one of the Sucre's specialities - cow tongues. If you are up for it, this is the place to try.

Supposedly a great sandwich place. When we came here it was actually closed, by which we were quite bummed out.

Salteñeria El Patio

Salteñas are very typical for Bolivia, and especially Sucre. Come here to try them.

Hotels

Samary Hotel Boutique

Our favourite hotel in town. It is very nice and has great view over the city from the rooftop.

Parador Santa María La Real

A very good plan B option. With an equally great view from the rooftop. If you do not stay here, you could come for drinks in the late afternoon on the rooftop.
