If you want to see what a park should be, the Plaza 25 de Mayo fits the bill. The relaxing benches allow great viewing of the wonderful children, strolling families, and we saw a great Tango couple dancing for coins.

One of my highlights of Sucre was getting a coffee or some fruit from the market and settling down on a bench for some people watching. It's a nice scene; families, marching bands, students flirting..

The plaza has been the cleanest and nicest presented square we have seen in Bolivia. The University environment and younger population most likely contributes to the atmosphere.

Over the "carnaval" holidays I witnessed people's behavior from maybe the 15th century. Very very dangerous feel given so many drunk people. After the holidays you can enjoy the sun and an overall peace

The plaza is very well taken care of. A lot of detail is pit into the plants around the plaza. There are lots of benches. A lot of older indigenous Bolivians walk around begging for money.

I spent most of my time in Sucre wondering here. It is not a big Plaza, but so nice and welcoming, there is people from all parts of the world, going along together with locals. Just sit, relax and observe. You will learn a lot while having fun.

Very nicely manicured plaza with BEAUTIFUL BUILDINGS around it, BUT it is full of cute little children who are “forced” to work selling different things, shining shoes or just begging. It is heart breaking to see the “rich children” with their parents enjoying the day playing around, driving little children cars, or just relaxing and little “street children” looking at... More

The plaza is a relatively quiet square in the heart of Sucre. The local people treat it with care and there are very few signs of vandalism or graffiti here. There are the usual squadrons of pigeons but no food is permitted to be sold for them. Lots of shade and it is really possible to sit quietly and watch... More

I was fortunate enough to be in Sucre just before Christmas and this place was just magical. They had strings of lights like waterfalls across the paths and lovely illuminated angels. The square is lovely anyway but this just made it extra special. It's the hub of Sucre and full of bustle with people relaxing, walking, selling stuff etc and... More
