The streets, plazas, buildings, and general environment are wonderful. The hotel situation is rather minimal, although shopping and restaurants are great. And it is near some nice natural areas including Maricao forest, and the beaches at La Parguera and Cabo Rojo area.

Old city! The oldest one in PR after San Juan. Reminds of Spanish heritage. Good spot for a walk on a sunny day

Colorful town with historic buildings. The church from 1800 is a walk into the past. Drive the streets to see the old houses !
