Sucre is a city in Bolivia. Due to its lovely colonial buildings it has been nicknamed the White City. It’s also great place to start acclimatising to altitude at 2,800m; and the sheer amount of Westernised cafes, hostels and bars have ensured it’s firmly on the tourist route. One other great things about it are the dinosaurs of Sucre and that was this #PhotoFriday focuses on.

The biggest tourist attraction in Sucre is a set of dinosaur tracks, that were discovered in a cliff face. A small theme park, El Parque Cretacico, has been developed and is located just 5km outside the city centre.

A shop called Para Ti was one of our other favourite things about Sucre. It is a chocolaterie that does amazing hot chocolate in addition to it’s vast array of chocolate. However, even here wasn’t safe from the dinosaurs of Sucre, because you can get dinosaur shaped quinoa chocolate!

Finally, all over the country phones are housed in random creatures. Depending on what the area is known for determines what creature. Sucre, obviously, has dinosaur phone booths like this one.
