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!
