Bolivia - Sucre

20 °C

The capital of Bolivia is Sucre, white buildings, big plazas, vibrant atmosphere and sat spectacularly in a valley. We loved Sucre and it became our home for 2 weeks, even joining our hostel owner for a tasty home cooked lunch with her extended family.


With good company in our hostel we kicked back, took on some more Spanish lessons and played numerous games of 500 over numerous bottles of wine... our daily routine involved heading to the local market for a massive fruit salad with 12 fruits, yoghurt, condensed milk, coconut, oats - all for about $1.

Sucre seems to be the city in which all northbound backpackers from Chile and Argentina converge as we ran into more people than at home. Good times and a great place to relax.


Paul thought we were in Jurassic Park on our trip to the Dinosaur Park just out of town. So he followed it up with a day trip to Humaca hiking for 7 hours in the Bolivian mountains to see footprints up close, incredible.
