Birthday in Sucre: fun things to do?Tomorrow 7th is my boyfriend's birthday and we are in Sucre.
I am looking to plan a fun day out and would love to hear your tips!
A nice place to watch a movie (in ING or with subs)? Maybe a cooking class? A spa to take him for a massage?
Please let me know what fun things you've experienced in Sucre.. As I am a bit lost!
Also a good pastry shop which sells chocolate cake near the main plaza?! I went to the market and believe it or not ALL birthday cakes had dulce de leche, which he doesn't care for!
By the way... I think there is no Indian restaurant in Sucre, but is there anywhere serving Indian food? he's Indian and we've been traveling for so long that this would be a real treat!
Thanks a lot!!

1I can't speak to Indian food, but there is a good movie theatre in a small complex with a grocery store about 5 blocks out from the plaza (I don't remember the name of the road but it's the one that runs along the side--NOT the face--of the assembly building on the plaza). They show mostly North American movies in English with subtitles. Bear in mind that release dates are usually around 2 months behind the U.S.
Try Para Ti chocolates for cake or other deserts. They have two cafes--the best is just uphill from the plaza, across from La Patisserie crepes.
If y'all are into museums, the textile museum (one of the best museums of any kind in the Andean nations) is located about 15 minutes' walk uphill from the plaza, right by the Cafe Mirador, which is a pleasant place to hang out.

2The cinema is in the same building as a the SAS supermarket, two-and-half blocks west of the stone cross at the corner of the cathedral, or half-a-block west of San Felipe and La Merced churches.
The Para Ti chocolate cafe is on the lefthand side half-a-block uphill from the cathedral corner.
I don't think there's an Indian restaurant in Sucre.

4I think I am late with my recommendations, but if you are still in town, you absolutely must attend the Origenes show - not touristy, excellent choreography, very professional, interesting, fun. It was one of the highlights of my visit to Bolivia - to my surprise. And we paid I think less than $15 pp.
