See old farming tools and learn about the life of farmers who worked the rice fields, coffee, cocoa, and banana plantations during the "cocoa boom." The courtyard of a restored hacienda serves a stage where costumed characters play out the 19th-century routines of daily life. Taste some of the traditional dishes at an old-fashioned bakery.

Very nice and well kept park with some animals. The access is free so it's a very good place to go with kids. There is also a hotel and an inexpensive restaurant.
We had a free day before an evening flight and this was recommended to us. It has a zoo, a farm, historic buildings that have been moved to this location and some stalls, places to eat and the chance of a boat ride and more. We went in the hope of getting a better view of a sloth and were not disappointed. We were told you could walk round the park in 2 hours but if you stop to watch the animals. (Some are very watchable)it takes longer. The boat ride wasnt up to much and not worth the $10 we suspect we were overcharged. It was nice to see so many locals there. Obviously it's a popular place to take the children at the weekend. There is a playground and lots to see and do for kids too.
