Trip Type:
City break Relaxation / spa

Customer Travel Tip: eat at el pollo campero! it's a local chain restaurant, good value for money. If you're taking tours to other places negotiate the fee. If your idea is only to see the city, two or three days are enough, there's not much to do.

Liked: the weather! the view from cerro de la cruz, and its atmosphere.

Disliked: there wasn't enough light, and felt a bit unsafe at nights
