The central plaza is a must visit. While the plaza is not spectacular itself, it’s a place where the community comes together. There are street vendors, street food and they also have events there some nights. The museum that’s on the plaza is very well...More

The main square is a great place to mingle with locals in the evening and explore the local food through ther many food stalls. The church is a nice, so is the small museum

The square is a great place to sit and take in the atmosphere as this town goes about its normal business. With good cafes and restaurants in the surrounding streets, it's a lively and safe place to spend a few hours

Everything happens here it seems. People of all economic levels are here. On one side of the square there are outdoor food stands up each evening. People hang out and talk. Couples sit in the more hidden spots. It is really lovely.
