“Our first taste of the old city”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Full of life, largely restored, dominated by a Spanish colonial cathedral. Worth a visit, with a great outdoor restaurant just to the side of the church.

“A must”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

This is very touristy but nevertheless a must. Be careful of the ladies dressed in traditional dress who pose for photographs as they expect to be paid. We had a mojito in the bar/restaurant just opposite the Cathedral and received the usual response that the credit card machine wasn't working, so make sure you take cash with you everywhere.

“Really Beautiful”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

the cathedral square is really beautiful. There is a lovely restaurant there where you can watch the world go by. Odd beggar but they leave as soon as you say no.

Great piece of history. But don't miss the other churches as well. They're all fascinating.
