I am planning a trip to South America (Peru, Argentina, etc) and would like input from travelers who have been to Bolivia. Generally speaking, I do not prejudge countries, but I must admit that I am a little intimated by Bolivia. Perhaps it is because of Bolivia’s landlocked location. Perhaps it is because of the country’s poverty. I don’t know. Just how bad is the poverty in towns like Sucre and Potosi? Are these towns geared towards mainstream travelers or they more oriented towards the ‘hardcore’ type?
Anyways, I am a sucker for old colonial towns. Rough Guide recommends Sucre and Potosi. If you have been to either, please let me know what you think. Compared to other architectural gems and impressive sightseeing destinations in Latin America-like Cusco, Buenos Aires, Salta, Rio de Janeiro, Santo Domingo (DR), San Juan (PR), etc., how do Sucre and Potosi measure up?
