    It is a place where time stopped, which retains the splendor of its best period. The people are the best!

    We hired a tour around the city with a local guide and a motorcycle taxi, which allowed us to know in detail all the places of interest of the city, such as the churches, the cemetery, the workshops of watermark, etc. The duration was approximately three hours, but is a journey that is worth making in moto-taxi, inasmuch as it is a very long journey to make it walk. The cost of the moto-taxi was $15,000 hour for two people and the Guide took about $50,000.

    It is worth walking through the streets at the end of the evening when a little lower heat. Against the river Boulevard is the most beautiful.
