  • A beautiful old town filled with colonial style buildings and many churches. I would recommend the horse drawn carriage tour to really get a feel of the city. Our driver was great to tell us much of is history and answer any questions one may have.
  • Good views. But the carriage tour wasn't so good. Some guides were better than others. Try to get one that speaks english .
