Welcome to Sucúa
The wide, neat streets of spread-out Sucúa mark the transition from Macas bustle to serene jungle. As – truth be told – this is a nicer town than Macas, it's worth a half-day trip out here. Old men slowly pedal bicycles as a vendor grills meats under the town’s only stoplight, across from a plaza of ficus trees and chirping cicadas. The Sucúa area is home to many people of the Shuar tribe, who can be seen around town. Market day is Sunday.
