Sucre is a great place to learn a new language. Not only is it a beautiful city but there’s plenty to keep you occupied.
Known as the Ciudad Blanca ('White City') and a UNESCO world heritage site, Sucre has a centre steeped in history and a hub of markets to keep shoppers and photographers happy. It's also the official capital of Bolivia - just don't tell the people of La Paz that!
Set at a pleasant altitude of just over 2800m, Sucre enjoys a year-round spring-like climate of sunny days and cool nights.
A city of students, Sucre is home to four universities so there’s a great atmosphere with lots of restaurants, bars and frequent live music at the weekends.
Sucre is renowned for it’s unique weavings and textiles which can be found throughout the city and at the famous Tarabuco Sunday market, a two-hour bus ride away.
There are a number of hikes to do in the surrounding countryside including the Seven Waterfalls, where you can climb the falls and swim in the pools. Sucre is also home to the world’s largest collection of dinosaur footprints and tours leave from the main square daily.
