A beautiful place. You can get a river boat ride that you will certainly enjoy. The tour shows you all the different buildings. Some of them are very old and most of them are very beautiful. You will enjoy it.

We purchased a ticket for $16.00 per person and were able to ride anytime we chose to flag down the taxi. That allowed us to get on and off, and dine at a restaurant or shop whenever we wanted. It covered the downtown area and...More

Great place, lots of restaurants. There is a need for more live music, especially spanish, rock and country. Water is always dirty too.
