It's a nice place to spend a quiet afternoon with the family. You can grab a bite and drink traditional "Rusas". You have to visit Instituto Cabañas while you're there. Great parking under it, expensive but easy to access. It could be cleaner.

Plaza tapatía is a very interesting place to visit because of the sculptures you can sit on. It has no people during mornings which would be the best to take some pictures.
