Suggestions for short stay at Hotel Cortez in Santa Cruz?
We are staying at Hotel Cortez in Santa Cruz the end of July. Due to flight schedule changes, we are now arriving much earlier than expected (1:44 am). We have a meeting at 5 pm that day at the hotel. We will be 11 women and 1 man--most with little to no Spanish and little experience traveling abroad.
1. Besides catching up with some sleep, and hanging by the pool, any suggestions for safe sightseeing for a few hours?
2. Any good places for saltenas, cunapes, or other good food in walking distance of the hotel? Need vegetarian options.
