Lovely place to just walk and wander around and explore, except at night. This area is where all the tourists go to visit. And is very nice and old looking with cobbled and brick streets. There are plenty of bike tours in the area and plenty of hostel in the area as well.
At night is where the youth and rebels come out. It does not seem safe at night. I was told many times by my local friends to hide my nice things when in the area.
The area is an amazing for taking photos, as there are a lot of places and great views to take photos of.
I was very unfortunate to be here twice during protests. The two that happened in 2 years. Tear gas in the streets stay in the streets here due to the narrowness of them. (Dont drive down these streets)
A very nice place to enjoy the bay area and enjoy some history. This place is an amazing place to capture some good photography, especially of underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. It is situation close to Crissy Field for a good walk.
Definitely filled with tourists as it is just off the waterfront. The good thing is that the locals who come here are amazing. Meet two guys who were just a blast. The bartender at the time was just straight up and to the point, not in a rude way, but in a way to just tell it how it is. The pizza was good and everything is worth the price (although the price of alcohol is expensive in Canada in general).
I love how calm and serene the place was. It is quite a bit more expensive than rest of indonesia/bali area. All that is fine, because the place is GORGEOUS.
The only drawback is that it is riddled with tourists rather than locals.
If your main goal is to get away and like to meet other travelers, the Gili T is for you. If you main goal is to learn about culture be around locals, then Gili T is NOT for you.
I would have to say I was relaxed there. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the whole island.
A simple city with simple things to do. But just outside of the city is amazing nature and it is close to other places to enjoy nature like Chicamocha. Not so far is a place to paraglide over the city of Bucaramanga and enjoy the quiet town for more than it is.
Downtown is lively when during the afternoon with a lot of street food.
The main street is full of clubs and upscaled places to eat as well as pubs for beer drinkers.
For being a 5 star hotel is lacks. Then again I am usually a budget traveler, but we were tired of looking for places to stay so we stayed here since it was the end of our trip.
This place is nice for one reason, we got to avoid he mosquitos.
This is also right off the beaches of Sengiggi. It is not so far from the night life as well.
The room was just an average size, with cable to tv and a safe. The bathroom was clean but not so large.
Breakfast buffet every morning which was a nice treat, especially since they had some one who made omelettes as well as nice pancakes, fruits and pastries.
This was a good pampering considering the all the roughing it we did before. This is not as high end as other hotels, but more like slightly above average compared to some hotels i have been in.
Colombia is one of my favorite countries. It offers some of the friendliest people I have come across. It also offers all kinds of environments for all. There are great mountains to visit, amazing forest, gorgeous beaches and amazing cities. The temperatures are very consistent, which means it is great to visit any time of the year.
Travel through Colombia is mostly done through bus system. If you don't mind long bus rides (that have better seats than most of my air flights).
The food is not for those who are vegetarian or want to eat healthy, especially in major cities (unless you want to a pay a lot). A lot of foods are deep friend. When in small towns there are a lot of great local markets to get organic AMAZING fruits that you have not see anywhere else.
I was told this is the place to party and drink when in Ensenada. Well I went with some family members and it is very... uhmmm... for the lack of a better word, Dirty. The people who are attracted to this place would be the kind of people you do not want to meet and the place is not pleasant to stay.
A blow hole where you can see the water splash on all you family members/travel mates. It is a place that is filled with tourists and commercial things eat/buy things. It is a tourist trap. It is fine if you like to see the touristy things but then again there doesn't seem to be much more to do in Ensenada.
I kept hearing good things about this place, finally I got to experience why. It is a small little pub to enjoy some english food (which I did not try as they are not diabetic/vegetarian safe). There is a good selection of brews on tap and the wine list is not bad as well. The thing that makes this place good... the fact they sound proofed the walls and ceilings. You can actually carry on a conversation and hear the people you are with.
During the week they have trivia nights and other fun activities.
A nice relaxing place to just sit and relax and enjoy some beers. It is best to get here around happy hour as the drinks are cheap and easy to just enjoy. There are kinds of walks of life who come here. It is a great place to just relax and kick back and watch some tv.
A lovely market that has a lot of small fast street food style vendors to be able to just eat and go. Just about everything here seems fresh and local. The best thing about this place is the atmosphere and the choices of all kinds of food to eat. It offers a small dining area in back or inside.
I don't usually stay in a lot of hotels. I was staying here mostly for business. The beds here were average and the room was okay size. The service here was great, especially as they did not mind giving me a warm cookie just about every day. The meeting I was there for made sure to accomodate for my meals, but twice did not prepare well for diet.
A nice place to enjoy a good beer. The beers here are pretty good and the bartenders are very nice and talkative. Swans is also a hotel so it can be a bit confusing when seeing it on a map, but when you get there, it is definitely a brewpub. I would recommend this stop for anyone who likes microbrews.
