My husband and I were just in Sucre and one of our favorite things to do was to sit and watch the goings-on in the city center square! We loved watching the local musicians, dancers, and children chasing birds! Definitely a must do in Sucre!

Pretty but small square where you can enjoy the Bolivian culture. On 25 de mayo, in the early morning, there is an official celebration of the independence which is amazing to watch.

Marching bands. Singing bands. Flag waving competitions. This is just in one section of the park. In the mornings each corner is peppered with professional shoe polishers that will do a great job for only Sinco Bolivianos (equal to AUD$1). Plenty of seats with shade...More
