1 Sucre

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.

3 Chicha

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.

4 Cochabamba

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.
