Extraordinary shopping. Great cost and beautiful feasting choices for all spending classes. This is in the region called Town Hall which is nearer to the downtown area. You can couple Odel on your approach to downtown area. It's for the most part loaded with foreigners.

We found some nice souvenirs and good quality clothes. It is not too big, so you won't spend too much time there. It is an ideal place to visit when it is raining or when you need a break from the heat outside.
