I was there 2 times in Sept. 2012. It is very nice place with an amazing view of the lake. It is good when you can go to the restaurant "Las Palomas".

Only place in the middle of downtown. The decor and style of the hotel is beautiful and keeps you distracted enough from the food. It's good. Bu't that's it. The decor, the location, the arquitecture, the live music, indoor courtyard, the stopping of time. Lovely.

Traditional town square with huge church and views. This little village is being re-constructed by young blood and money.

Nice easy way to spend a few hours. 30 pesos each to enter the park. Easy 10 minute walk up through the forest. Cool with the waterfalls spray. Vendors were very friendly and not aggressive.
