A beautiful monastery with an even better view, Convento La Popa de la Galera makes for a fantastic visit.

This was the first place Wil took us and it was a great place to start - great views of all of the city and very interesting. He talked with us about things we saw on the way up the hill.

1) The guide's English skills were not great and it was hard to understand him. 2) One member of our group required an electric wheelchair. Claudia had assured us that her vehicle and her employees could handle this - she was wrong and it created a significant delay and problems throughout the trip,

Wow!! What a view from up the top of this monastery. The courtyard was breathtaking and the building is in such great shape for how old it is. Don't miss this!!!!

The tour dedicates a lot of time to la Popa Monastery which is not worth. Instead they just made a photo stop at the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas which is really nice. We went to visit the old town which is also very interesting and we saw some local dances that were also very interesting. Some shopping is also included in this tour, but our guide was nor very good. Part of my group was with this guide and other part was with another guide who was much better than ours.

Met us right at the pier. The van was airconditioned and the driver was excellent and watched our belongings left on the van. La Popa Monastery was my favorite. Beautiful courtyard. Be prepared for about 3 miles of walking on the ciyt tour in old town. We stopped in several cathedrals, the dungeons for shopping and also visited the new town shops. Street vendors are hard to ignore, just don't make eye contact. Dora gave us a lot of history and is very proud of her country.
