Great place to enjoy the beautiful architecture of this quaint town. One can just sit, watch people , relax, enjoy ice cream. There are 2 souvenir shops close by. There is a BK and Church's chicken when you get hungry. A must visit.

Simply awesome. Kings cream has the best ice cream in the world. On one of the street corners there's a stand that sell baked potatoes. Omg, the best thing you'll ever eat.

Definitely worth a walk through to see the architecture. I went instead of the beach because it was raining. The drive from Combate was nice too. I spent 3 hours walking around, eating lunch, and hitting up the casino. Check out a coffee plantation on...More
