We enjoyed seeing inside some of the lovely old buildings with their tiled floors.
After walking around we stopped by the Plaza (now all lighted up for Christmas) for a bite of dinner.
When it came time to go home we discovered that the bus we wanted had been completely rerouted because of the "espectacular" that was taking place along the malecon. We weren't in the mood for more spectacles so we ended up taking a taxi home.
Taxis are pretty cheap here compared to Victoria. We paid the fare of $5 and added a $1 tip for a ride that took about 20 minutes, and as usual we ended up talking in Spanish to the driver. So we also get a language class thrown in for free.
