  • Tarabuco

    If you visit Sucre, make sure to stay until Sunday which is Tarabuco's market day. Tarabuco is a small town about 1.5 hours away from Sucre. It's a great place to load up on mittens, hats, and blankets before you head to the freezing temperatures of the Salar. Also, try the street food, it's extremely tasty. And if you're daring, try a sip of the...

  • Copacabana vendors

    Many vendors outside the Copacabana Cathedral sell medallions of the Virgin Mary, as the chapel holds the famous statue of Virgen de Copacabana. You can also buy flowers, garlands, candles - items to decorate those things, that you want to be blessed. We even saw decorated cars outside the church - waiting to be blessed!

    Every town in Bolivia has a great market area, some with many of them. Copacabana's was small but colorful with merchants dressed in traditional clothing. There are many great fruits as well as other local foods you won't find anywhere else. Papayas are cheap and always good at less than a dollar.
