Customer Travel Tip: Don't go during weekends. Dont expect the old Town to be animated. Do the guided tour of Teatro Solis.

Liked: Nice plazas. Cultural attractions Like Teatro Solis are really cheap and Nice to visit.

Disliked: The city center and old Town (ciudad vieja) is DEAD during weekends. It is hard to find a place to eat a saturday night! Restaurants are expensive and buses are complex to get around (stops are not clear, there are many companies, etc,)
