  • Place sugar, this place is living colorful, like to get lost in the middle of the stands of meat, vegetables, etc. To do!

  • Behind the meat Department, there are the stalls where you get bolivianos juices for 4-6. These are super tasty and hygienic in my experience. Tip: There are always free refill. Thus, in principle, you get 2 juices for the price of one. So cheap there nowhere else are these.

  • A very fun place to go. While the environment is not clean or with good smell, the food is not rich but very cheap. The juices are spectacular. It is fun to go and see the culture, not for lunch.

  • Great fruit juices, chorizo sandwihes, and cheap good upstairs
  • Here's the lowdown on the mercado central; Breakfast; get some bread from the inside area by the fruit stands ask for "caspitas", get some fresh and delicious cream "nata" it comes in a little cup for 7bs. from the fresh milk area, next to the cheese vendors. Lunch; chorizo chuquisaqueno sandwich - at the "7 lunares" spot inside the market, or head cheese sandwich - dont freak! take the sample it is awesome! Late night, try tojori con leche and bunuelos.
  • You can eat here at night for really cheap. Can recommend this :)
  • One of the most important markets in Chuquisaca where you can find almost anything to eat in large amounts and cheap prices. The bad thing however is the lack of hygiene and terrible state of the toilets.
  • This is an interesting cultural experience of you've never seen a market in a developing country before. You can buy lots of fresh veggies and fruits. The best part is the route of stalls selling fruit juices for 5 bolivianos.

Where to stay in Sucre

With building restrictions in place for decades, the city of Sucre has developed a little differently than most other cities on the continent. However, the touristic appeal of Sucre has driven up demand for accommodations--now slotted in old, colonial-era buildings rather than new-build high-rises. This development ethos has worked well, with lodgings in Sucre's center among the most comfortable and characterful in the country. Exclusive options cluster around the town's prettiest plazas, with grand rooms and fine-dining restaurants. Budget-minded visitors should explore the range of posadas (guesthouses), set in modest formerly residential buildings on the town's side streets.
