An easy and interesting way to see the colonial zone. With the uneven pavement and the heat it is not an easy area to discover walking and the jnformation provided on the trip is very clear. Very friendly employees!

I found the best place to purchase lovely rings, bracelets, etc was near the market square from the street vendors. Street vendors are licensed and are easily identifiable.

You can take a Taxi cab, Uber is the best option. It is about 15 minutes drive. The ticket office is just where the train departs.. Hope it helps...
