I can't say enough about the Conde, a pedestrian avenue that is the heart of the Colonial Zone. From shopping to dining to cruising, it all happens on the Conde! My favs are the open air cafe at the Mercure Comercial Hotel and Paco's Restaurant, on opposite ends of the Conde. Both have a variety of menu items, reasonable prices and nice service. If you like to chill and people-watch or if you like to cruise, trust me the experience is fierce at either.
