Known as the White City, Bolivia’s official capital combines delightful colonial-era architecture with the lively atmosphere of a university town.
2 Museo de Arte Indigena
Sucre’s best museum is dedicated to the remarkable weavings of the indigenous groups from the surrounding region.
The sacred drink of the Incas, this thick, tart and mildly alcoholic maize beer is for sale wherever you see a white flag on a pole in the Cochabamba Valley – though it’s something of an acquired taste.
A friendly and modern city, Cochabamba boasts a year-round sunny climate, some great restaurants and a buzzing nightlife scene.
5 La Cancha
Cochabamba’s vast covered market is the throbbing heart of this commercial city, and of the Quechua-speaking communities of the surrounding valley.
6 Parque Nacional Torotoro
Set amid deep canyons and rushing waterfalls Bolivia’s smallest national park is dotted with dinosaur footprints and pre-Inca ruins.
