Prime attraction for breaking journey here was Parita, a tiny unspoilt colonial village,10k's N of town. Parita itself takes an easy 1/2 hour stroll - not much else to do there & not worth the effort.
Chitre is a pleasant town, Herrera state capital, but annoyingly the bus station is outside the centre necessitating a 15 cent bus or a $1.15 taxi ride. This local bus goes to La Arena too, which is the place with many tacky ceramics shops but also some quite pleasant colonial houses too.
Hotel not cheap (> $15) but have got wifi in lobby, private balcony and cable TV in English for the first time in months - luxury!
