Ideal to spend an afternoon meandering around the streets, seeing the local culture and trying the locally sourced Andean food.

Very pretty streets and plazas to wander round and explore. Feels very safe, much more so than the guide books imply.

“Nice place to walk if it's not raining”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

and it rains a lot during the "winter"...when it rains there's no place to take cover, and it's not the safest part of town. A man on the street told us we shouldn't go any further down one street after looking at my boyfriend's camera...
