Beautiful private art collection in an amazingly restored private home. One hour guided tour from 10-11. Donations go to fund local medical facilities. Well worth it.

The tour begins when you knock on the door (once!). They ask for a donation of about 100 pesos per person, which goes to worthwhile local charities. The tour guides look after both the owners and the exhibits. This private... More
