A wonderful place to get an authentic look at such a beautiful city. The shopping is fabulous and certainly one should be ready to bargain.

This is a lovely part of town to sit, drink coffee, and watch the world go by. Every time I've been here, I've witnessed one or two wedding parties in the park. There are also street vendors, and usually live musicians. Hold on to your purses and bags (or better yet, carry nothing at all) to avoid pickpockets. The park is lovely, day or night, but I am always more cautious here at night. Better to be on the safe side and visit during the day.

Beautiful plaza however you will be bombarded by locals wanting to sell you tours or trinkets. Hey, their just doing their job. Be polite and they will be too.

The buildings were beautiful and well kept. The plantings and fountain were nice. There was a parade with a band going by when we were there.
