. Having said this, if you can look past the noisy traffic there are more historic neighbourhoods such as Barrio Amón where you will find some interesting old colonial mansions. The theatre adds a bit of grandeur and the art, gold and jade museums are all cultural highlights. The bustling Central Market is worth a visit to witness daily life in action. We can arrange an interesting food and culture tour where you get to taste local street food and learn more about everyday life.
