Springtime in the White City
Sucre is the laid-back, compact capital of Bolivia. You won't be the first traveller to be surprised to hear that Sucre, not La Paz, is Bolivia's capital. Despite the altitude the colonial college town has a wonderful climate due to its located in a sheltered valley. Don't be fooled by the old-fashioned appearance of the houses and colonial churches: Sucre has a youthful and energetic atmosphere.

Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Sucre
In Sucre we’ll make reservations for you to stay at a traditional posada with a sunny courtyard. Try to take it easy on your first day; even though Sucre is relatively lower than the rest of Bolivia, its altitude is still high compared to the UK. In the afternoon you can go for a walk through the narrow streets. Sucre’s old city is considered the best preserved Spanish colonial city in South America.
Sucre - Free Time
Today is free for you to spend as you wish. We recommend that you visit El Monasterio Recoleta, a Franciscan monastery where you can walk through the halls and gardens. The patio with orange trees is a delightfully quiet spot where you can let your impressions sink in. The view from the monastery terrace out across the city’s rooftops at sunset is simply spectacular.
