No complaints about the accommodations - the inner courtyard has a swimming pool and foliage. I strongly suggest getting a room that faces the courtyard (instead of the street) in order to avoid street noise.

... the main square. We've seen the Cathedral (where is the board for the memory of the pope JPII and a painting of him). I've seen a lot of endogenous people (or those who pretend to be ones) - Aztecs or Indians, whatever you call them :P They were wearing traditional clothes, f.e. plumes, playing music and dancing around a fireplace (or sth which was supposed to be ...
