Customer Travel Tip: u should see the old town :)

Liked: spot for coming and going on to antoher place, funny crazy bus rides (public transport/ schoolbus), safe and nice hostels anyways & shopping opportunities like in europe (equal prices in "Multicentro"), also small supermarkets to get food a little cheaper than in streetfood-restaurants...

Disliked: very big town, not really nice to walk around outside because of huge roads and many cars... more mosquitos than on san blas etc.
