Really there is very little that you can buy in Tarabuco that cannot be bought in Sucre, however you cannot blame the Pueblito for trying to attract visitors even though it is said ' when you are tired of Sucre, you are tired of life'....More
About an hours drive from Sucre this market felt very traditional and not at all touristy (although there were tourists there). Lots of locals going about their daily business; it's worth walking to the vegetable market too (we didn't see other tourists there) which is...More
From reading the negative reviews here I believe I had a different experience when I went with my family (who live in Sucre, I'm from England). I don't know if that's because we went in our own vehicle, we could stop when we wanted at...More
