Don't be fooled by the quaint well preserved old world facade of this town - at this time of year gringo travellers are serious target for locals. Marking the start of the festival season locals love pelting each other with water bombs, but they love pelting gringos more. Whether it's from second floor windows, a drive-by with water canons or... More

Spent quite a few Mornings and evenings bin the plaza. There is always something interesting going on, from break dancers, street artists or vendors, Christmas decorations, feeding the pigeons or just plain people watching.

Worth going to only because it is in the centre of town near the restaurant and shopping district. A large gardened area surrounded by public buildings.

This is a lovely plaza surrounded by well kept colonial buildings in the heart of the old part of Sucre. The gardens are well tended and there is plenty of shade from the mature trees. As a gringo you'll be approached by beggars but no more so than anywhere else in Bolivia. A good place to people watch or spend... More

I is a big square in the center of the city, but somehow very tranquil and quiet. You can sit there, eat icecream and just relax. Very nice to go in the night, its not dangerous at all.

Generic title I know, but it is a nice spot to sit, chill and take in the surroundings. You can also pick up the wifi from the restaurants from the front benches.

Busy place all day easily accessible, if you're lucky you can be escorted across the road by a helpful Zebra. Lots of trees and benches to sit down and view the amazing architecture of the surrounding buildings.

It is a small park, very busy all day. At night you could see groups of young people dancing. Locals spend time on the benches, chatting, relaxing. It is a busy area around the park, you can find cafes and restaurants. Two blocks from here you find the Central Market where fruit and all kinds of food supplies are sold.... More

I have been to the plaza multiple times, sometimes just walking through, sometimes to meet people, and today I wrote postcards on a bench. There are plenty of benches to sit on, the landscaping has been done well, and you can sit and relax and enjoy some time. When I sat down the first time I wasn't bothered at all... More
