After a little restoration project a few years ago this was set to be a trendy place to visit. Not so. Most of the shops were closed. A few open restaurants selling boring food. Disappointing

Don't forget to have a night tour at Barrio Antiguo and get drunk, La Iguana, since 1991 it's the right place.

This is a very nice part of town, with lots of bars, nightclubs and restaurants. It really comes to life at night. Great place to have dinner and some drinks.

Walking around the neighborhood with a camera (during the day) is a great way to take in the surroundings without feeling rushed or out of place. It's more crowded at night and there are plenty of opportunities to dance, drink and dine.

This place is booming with bars again after the city became un safe. As in every big city, watch out for pick pockets and try to walk in places where there are others walking. Very nice and lively place. For every budget and taste.

They have a bar for every style of person and every personality. Romantic places like Tres Lunas are my favorite, which is more of a cafe. Bars are fun at night, a great place to drink with friends!
