we paid for a service that wasn't what we've got, no one took responsability for it. We did not get our money back. We talked to the people in reception and they mistreat us. There goes $12 i will NOT get back. Very disapponiting

I found the best place to purchase lovely rings, bracelets, etc was near the market square from the street vendors. Street vendors are licensed and are easily identifiable.

You can take a Taxi cab, Uber is the best option. It is about 15 minutes drive. The ticket office is just where the train departs.. Hope it helps...
