Day 1: Sucre

A short flight from La Paz brings you to the colonial city of Sucre. At 9200 feet above sea level, Sucre enjoys the perfect Spring climate year round. Today is yours to explore its colorful market and visit several colonial buildings, museums and churches while wandering the narrow streets of this pleasant town.

Day 2: Tarabuco or Jatun Yampara

Sunday is market day in the village of Tarabuco, where farmers and weavers from the countryside join together in a festive atmosphere to trade foodstuffs, fine weavings, and exchange gossip with far away friends and relatives.

If this day is not a Sunday, visit the traditional village of Jatun Yampara, known for its artisanal textiles and ceramics. Walk through this village that focuses on preserving its ancient art forms and agricultural ways-of-life, and visit the community museum.

After the full day excursion, return to Sucre and board the bus for the three hour ride to Potosi where you will be met by your new host. Transfer to the hotel and relax.

Day 3: Potosi

At over 13,000 feet above sea level, Potosi is the highest city of its size in the world. After the discovery of silver in Cerro Rico (Rich Hill), Potosi grew into the largest and most opulent city in the Americas. The city’s rich colonial architecture and tragic history as a colonial mining town has earned recognition from UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Visit Cerro Rico, the San Francisco Convent, and the mine neighborhoods. Travelers have the chance to enter the mine and “visit” Tio Supay, the deity who owns the mines and rules the underworld. The miners seek to pacify him through offerings in order to prevent accidents from occurring underground.

Board the return bus to Sucre this evening and transfer to the hotel.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
