In the old quarter this avenue is a wide tree lined & cobblestoned boulevard transforming into a busy town centre street with strip shopping, restaurant & businesses

This is the street to change money and it is full of gift shops and restaurants. Prices are a lot more convenient than in the historic downtown.

My memory might be failing but I found the main street boring this time. Few shops and the restaurants all seem to only offer burgers, pizzas and empanadas. The sidewalks are a hazard,

General Flores is the main thoroughfare bisecting the Old City. It is suitable for restaurants but is mainly only a commercial street without any true cultural attractions. You can skip it unless you're looking for dining options.
