Where I stayed
The drive from the Air port was relatively easy with the GPS after only one U-turn. The El Troplicano is a nice hotel, clean rooms with the only complaint being the absence of a fridge to put milk in. Americans like their coffee with a un-identifiable white powder.
In the centre of the city there is a marvelous river/canal side walkway. The river is just over 4/5 meters below street level and the cobblestone paths are edged with all manner of resturants. The Cypres trees and vegitation are magnificent. I imagine it stays pretty cool in Summer as well.
The two American/Texan/Mexican resturants have both been good so far. Hopefully I will get more of a chance to look at some of the shops over the next few days.
