We found the Post Office on our way from the Historic Centro square to the Ballet (January 22, 2018). Go on a sunny day because the sun shining in the windows makes the brass glow! It really is a something a camera cannot capture. You...More

We just went into the building, took pictures, admired the architecture. The craftmanship is amazing. You can almost imagine what it must have looked like way back in the days with beautifully dressed people going about their mail business at the counters. Everything seemed so...More

For a nostalgic of handwritten letters this is a magic place. If you are not a romantic, the building deserves a visit anyway. There is a wonderful staircase and all the counters are a piece of art. Go there!

The building of the main postal office is spectacular, but the museum located inside is pretty small and underwhelming. Few pieces on display consist of some uniforms documents, photos, tools of the trade and stamps. Explanations are in Spanish, which does not help. Ok for...More

There are post offices and there is post offices. Imagine a post office in The Great Gatsby and it will give you an idea of what's like. I only came here as a friend needed a stamp. What a pleasant surprise this place was.

This was a surprise...a gorgeous building in the historic central district. We saw a photo display and took note of all sorts of gorgeous designs and building materials- especially liked the marble on the walls and floors.

This beautiful park was once the playground for the
wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may
