“Eclectic dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The walled city offers an array of dining choices, bars ranging from cigars, wine and discos. Plenty of Boutique hotels and fine shopping stores as well as local vendors. Very French Quarters style. From the horse and carriages to the cobble stone pedestrian walkway.

“Too many tourists”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Twenty-six tour buses from two different cruise ships descended on old town at the same time--resulting in crowds of people pushing their way through other crowds of people in the narrow cobblestone streets. The tour buses then brought their passengers to two shopping centers selling emeralds and diamonds at inflated prices.

“Have a walk at the wallside ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Great view at the city, start your walk not to late as the sunset can be very colourfull. Do not wear highheels (like columbian women do)
