The town itself has a very nice, relaxed atmosphere. There is a regular market, where people from the surroundings come to buy and sell all kinds of things. It's nice just to sit on a bench in the beautiful park and watch the people go strolling by. It's easy to make friends here and mingle with the locals. There are several interesting colonial buildings and churches. You can climb the hill to the plateau with the big white cross. This site is called El corazón de Jesus (the Heart of Jesus). This is a magnificient viewpoint, from where you can see the whole town with the typical coloured mountains in the background.

You can also mail me if you've got any questions. It would be a pleasure to be of help.
