Sabores de Sucre: A Culinary Journey
Welcome to Uku Pachay: The Underworld, where we believe that the best way to experience a city is through its hidden secrets and forgotten tales. Our expert guides, Daniel, Manuel, and Brian, are passionate about uncovering the truths and mysteries of Sucre, Bolivia. Daniel's tour, "Hidden Facts and Forgotten Lore," will take you on a journey through the city's lesser-known history, sharing stories that you won't find in any guidebook. Manuel's "Sucre at Night" tour will introduce you to the city's nocturnal world, where shadows hold secrets and the unknown is just a few steps away. Brian's "The Food in Sucre" (soon) tour will tantalize your taste buds with the incredible flavors of Sucre, introducing you to local cuisine that you won't find anywhere else. At Uku Pachay, we are committed to providing the best possible experience on our tours. We believe that truth, mystery, and incredible flavors are the perfect combination to create an unforgettable experience. Join us on one of our tours and discover the magic of Sucre through our expert guides' eyes.
IMPORTANT Please read this before booking this tour.
Sometimes there can be some demonstrations or different events happening in the area but we can make some changes in the itinerary if required.
The price of food and drinks during the tour must be covered by the tourist taking part in this tour. It won't be a lot, but please bring some cash for this.
Free tours do not have a set price, I do not receive any sort of payment from the city hall or the Bolivian government.
Each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from 10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
WE ONLY DO SMALL GROUPS, we are not trying to reach the most people, but the right type of people. The groups start from one to five and up to eight -upon request- people. I strongly believe in quality services, and because of that, I also require that the people who book this tour should be interested in learning something. Please consider other options if you are too tired to listen or uninterested.
We'll kick off our culinary adventure at 9 am, meeting at the vibrant Plaza Cochabamba. From there, we'll take a leisurely stroll to the bustling Mercado Central, where we'll indulge in some warm Api (corn porridge) and scrumptious Pastel de Queso (fried cheese-filled empanadas). Along the way, we'll try the finest chocolate from Bolivia's City of chocolate.
After getting a taste of Sucre's breakfast traditions, we'll head to the most iconic Salteñería in town to savor their mouthwatering Salteñas. These baked empanadas are brimming with meat, potatoes, vegetables, hard-boiled eggs, olives, and spices. Don't worry, vegetarians – there's a delicious meat-free option available for you too!
As we continue to explore the charming streets of Sucre, we'll have a choice to make: either delve deeper into the delights of Mercado Central or venture onward to the lively Mercado Campesino. The tantalizing treats we'll encounter for the rest of our tour will depend on this decision, so let's keep the upcoming surprises under wraps for now.
Get ready for an unforgettable gastronomic journey through the heart of Sucre!
