“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I was on Walled City and it was a really nice experience, walking around and over the walls was a fantastic experecience, like stay at Pirates of Caribbean Sea movie!!!
I suggest walk around by your self, sing a song with the Vallenato's band in the street and enjoy the sunset, really nice experience.....

“Well worth it.”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Great to walk or bike ride early in the morning. An amazing structure that has had us wondering about the history including Francis Drake.

“so much history”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

get a knowledgable guide four hours more or less gives you a great overview and sense of the history of this interesting city...you can't appreciate it on your own, like most places you have never been before....historically,the city has much tooffer...architecture in the old city is fantastic...The Hotel Sofitel Santa Clara is nicely located...primarily because from most rooms you can see the ocean or the bay...see my separate review of the hotel.

“Confusing, but gorgeous!!!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We got lost so many times here, but I've never had so much fun getting lost before!! It was just so magical wandering around these streets and feeling like we'd gone back in time. The buildings are so colourful and pretty. I found the beautiful large doors with elaborate door knockers (lions, hands, turtles, lizards etc) particularly fascinating.
