  • If you need to make purchases, remove or change money, like to eat something, buy drugs, well everything what you will find around the square. The square is very safe, quiet and well maintained.

  • Decent main plaza that is dominated by main cathedral. It is close to main bars, restaurants, agencies and malecon. Watch out at night though.  more »
  • I've been in smaller cities and towns that have more attractive plazas than this one. Nothing special about it at all.  more »
