Continue to Castro to stop for lunch at your own expense. Visit the typical stilted houses in the Gamboa district, the main square, and the Nercón Church which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Originally constructed around 1890, the church is considered a national monument.

Lots of driving, the guide Jenny was really good but quite frankly the van was too crowded and tight even for the shorter people. Given the amount of driving the experience would have been better if it was more comfortable.
