Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing Romantic getaway Shopping Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Be aware that most restaurants tack on a whopping 26-28% to each bill, and this does not even include the tip.

Liked: The Zona Colonial was interesting and the people were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: There don't appear to be any municipal services. Specifically, no garbage pick-up. The streets and waterfront are covered in trash.
