Book now, because this city is about to become a major tourist attraction in 2020. Thanks to convenient flight options and a totally cool beach town vibe (think Miami meets old world Spain), people are flocking here in droves.
Book a room or apartment stay in Ciudad Amurallada, the cultural center of the city where you’ll find restaurants, cafes, and shops—most within walking distance of the area’s hotels. Make your way to the clock tower for some truly stunning sight seeing and don’t forget to make time to stop for delicious local treats at one of the many snack stands that line the city streets.
If you’re craving some beach time, most resorts offer day passes with transportation to and from. Other recommended day trips include the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, a 16th century castle, and the Volcán de Lodo El Totumo, an active volcano where you can bathe in healing mud.
