There is nothing spectacular here, but as wonderful place to just spend time and enjoy being part of humanity, it is terrific. We breakfasted here our first morning at El Rincon de Don Tomas and returned several times each day thereafter. Many of the things...More

Great people watching, busy locale, relax on a bench. But, Must Go back after dark for the magnificent, lit up, churches. Very touristy, especially during the day ... but, for good reason!
