Very busy at night. Lots of restaurants and bars. Careful of the uneven surfaces of sidewalks and streets if you have been drinking too much.

A few trendy/design shops - not offering anything particularly interesting - mainly design items that were trying to echo NY, LA, London youth culture or urban chic - rather than anything original

You can smoke inside, and drink outside. In fact, the bars can give you your cocktail or beer or whatever in a plastic cup so you can bring it elsewhere to continue drinking. If you like alcohol, and like expploring/chilling in the streets while you do so, you'll like Barrio Alto.

I stayed here for 4 nights in mid-July and thoroughly enjoyed it (this was me second time staying here -- the first was about two years ago).

We stayed right in the city center.. and it is really close to this wonderful area. Lots of cafes where we can relax after a whole day of exploring the city.

Looks like a postcard. White buildings and clay roofs. A great little gem. Make sure you wear flat shoes as lots of bumpy roads.
