  • Great meeting spot. Although it's sometimes jam packed, I always find my friends. Our iconic and much loved central park! Also on some nights of the week, in one of the square corners, u can find a vendor selling quesadillas with bacon and chicken cutlet and grilled tomatoes and onions. Some of my favourite late night street food in town.
  • Such a central place to meet old friends and make new ones.. such a comfortable green space with plenty of seating and shade..there is constant action, but one can enjoy the solitude that is present as well..the tourist information office is just steps away as are numerous restaurants.. entertainment includes, bands, jazz musicians, juggling, a close view of the Catholic Church, The Parroquia, with activities such as weddings on the weekends..just be present and enjoy the moment...
