i saw this listed on the internet and am glad i found it -- also nearbye is a restaurant like water for chocolate --- although i did not eat at bellavista i would have if i was not alone -- the shops were fun to look at -- and lots of security everywhere you look. university area so even outside and nearbye are other vendors with artsy stuff... and cheap sandwiches by street vendors.

Really interesting place to visit. The melting pot of students, tourists, and artists. Lots of nice places to visit, great restaurants, and the general atmosphere is very energetic! Would love to visit again!

The Bellavista area is full of restaurants and bars catering basically to young people. If the weather allows it, you can also drink a gigantic beer bottle in the sidewalk tables but a few dollars. There are also discos were you can eat and dance. The area is very safe and well lit. It remains active until 5 am. The main drawback is that they allow patrons to smoke in the premises.

I had heard these were decent aretsan shops. Wasn't sure what to expect but walked into the courtyard area and it immediately felt like a nice atmosphere. All were tiny shops or just shop fronts, but the overall quality was good and there were no cheap trashy shops. I bought a ceramic owl by a local artist in rainbow colours. There were several jewellery shops, a French crepe shop (try the banana & Nutella one) and various others. There are some interesting art installations in the courtyard and if you run out of money there's an ATM there as well. There were about 8 or so restaurants and about 25 shops.
