This park felt kind of touristy, more so than plazas in other Central and South American cities, I think, but still nice to visit/hang out in for a while and people-watch, or grab a bite to eat at one of the outdoor eateries.

This plaza has it all. It is a beehive of local activity. Horse drawn carriages, shopping, food, and plenty of locals just hanging out enjoying the day.

You have to wander through the park if only to get a feel of where you are. Lots of people selling stuff but it is how they survive. Have lunch, buy a hat, a pair of sunglasses. Why not?

Best place to sit and watch the world go by. Plenty of street people selling everything and anything. Stay in the right kind of mind to deal with them and a pleasant place to relax.
