  • It is a beautiful place and the infrastructure of its history is very impressive, unfortunately have care with two young women they seek to scam you, seek your friendship to carry you to tour the place and explain the history, but truly looking to scam you, take you to a tea ceremony, without previously tell you where you are going and tell you that it is a surprise Lugo comes to you account and they are $100 per person. Be careful because it is a dangerous place. Below the photo of the person who is involved with this 2 young leave one has 26 years old and the other 28, speak very well English.

  • Now, although is called "Old town", but not really has to do something. All more or less for us tourists rebuilt and is somehow similar to Disneyland. Unfortunately, nothing at all is originally.
