Sights, smells and leather sandals: The hidden delights of a traditional country market
A venture into the countryside to the village of Tarabuco will result in one of the best days out you will have in Bolivia. This country market has something to offer even the most jaded and souvenir-weary traveller.
The popularity of Tarabuco’s Sunday market is evident even before you leave Sucre – the hordes of people packing the departing buses, a sign that Tarabuco is the place to be at the weekend. If you manage to get a seat (or even standing room) on one of the buses heading out to Tarabuco, a journey through beautiful scenery awaits you. Two and a half hours of winding through hills later, Tarabuco appears suddenly out of the countryside, waiting to be explored.
