We visited on a hot morning in early October. From the moment we got off our tour bus, we were beset with children asking for money and street vendors. I believe our cruise ship may have been the first of the season and our guide...More

great food from street vendors and cafes, lots of street sellers of hats and souvenirs but no one is pushy at all. Always bustling and lively. Great during the International Poetry Festival as loads of brilliant live music

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.

The park is a lovely place to rest and grab a refreshment. It’s also an awesome place for souvenirs. This was our stop to find something for each of our four kids, and the vendors did not disappoint. One vendor even kindly asked her daughter...More

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?
