My guide, Jose Acosta, give one of the two of three best city tours I have ever taken. We saw the regular sights -- don't miss the Barro Museum -- but more importantly, Jose gave me the full view of the city, from the rich neighborhoods with cobblestone, pot-hole streets to slow drivers down to the tent cities where refugees from the low-lying areas by the river were flooded several months ago. I needed a camera strap -- we searched around shops until we found one ... one among several helps that Jose did ... and at the end of the half-day, a friend from the same conference texted, and we hired Jose to repeat the trip until early evening.

Only he didn't repeat everything. He mixed and matched with new things, like the city market, which is nothing like other city markets that I've seen, including famous souks.

Can't praise Jose Acosta highly enough.
