Tio Lucas: Think Margaritas

Great breakfast and churros. Also a great place to run into people you have met around town. It is crowded for breakfast so get there early or plan to wait in line. Great place to stop during the day for a quick pick up and place to regroup for the rest of the day of...
Bola Ocho: Authentic Pool Hall
It doesn't have a sign and doesn't advertise, but it is the real deal: an upstairs pool hall with a dozen or so tables where the locals, both Mexican and gringo like to hang out, shoot some pool and have a beer. Not a heavy scene, it caters to grandpas, teenagers and anyone...

Look at the local policemen... aren't they cute?!
They don't look really aggressive or impressing but they certainly look pittoresque and even cute. You will see them riding their horses around the streets in downtown and the central park, and I'm sure their main goal is to guide and inform tourists & people in general...

La Terraza: do not eat in this restaurant
We ate at the La Terraza restaurant in August of 2007. The place clearly ows its abundant clientele to its location, right next to the astonishing church of Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel (on Sollana street), the main religious temple in town. The menu looked overpriced...
A nice church very close to downtown
This is San Francisco Temple.... I would have loved to see the inside of the church but unfortunately there was a funeral taking place in front of the main door when we passed by (before leaving town) and we could not go in. The architecture of the facade and the dome - not...
