    Stop safety pins if you are in Concord. Happy place where was born the little Prince! Excellent restoration work!? I had the opportunity to tour with several of the guides and that stands out most is a fat man type Ranger that always goes with a hat. Do not miss it!

Where to stay in Concordia

Most of Concordia's accommodations are in its southern neighborhood, where upscale hotels provide good rooms close to the river. The abundance of space just north of the main city has led to a number of resort-style hotels opening and expanding into the landscape, offering a range of facilities like private pools, onsite restaurants, and bars. Budget-conscious travelers are well catered for here, with plenty of hostels and rental apartments located in the main residential areas of the city.
