I went to the factory and saw the exhibition of the granddaughter/niece hand building pottery, as part of the tradition of black pottery all hand-built on the tour. I then bought 2 piece of pottery, 2 MUGS, in the showroom. I attempted to drink coffee...More

A good way to see some key local sites and sights relatively conveniently, but don't expect comfort. The minivans are cramped, and the air conditioning can struggle, especially towards the back rows. If you aren't a fluent Spanish speaker, don't expect much in the way...More
