The best walking Tour in Sucre
Greetings. I am José, I have lived in Sucre for most of my life. Although my training at university was not about Tourism or history; knowing and learning about new cultures and knowing their stories has always enchanted me. That is why I have been showing travelers the different and interesting aspects of my city for some time. Join me, meet and learn to love this city with me.
A walk through the city of the 4 names, its past and present - free tour
Sucre has maintained a balance between its indigenous, colonial and mestizo roots, which makes it an extremely interesting city, with many colors and stories and also very interesting facts.
Sucre is a very safe city, a demographically young city with an affordable cost of living.
If I were you, I wouldn't miss it
