Parque Hidalgo is very small and clean. It has plenty of park benches. The monument stairs are a good place for a group photo. The park is across from a beautiful church and the Las Trompos restaurant, which I recommend.

The park has 3 hotels however, only two have outside eating places, Hotel Caribe and La Mansion. You don't have to be a guest at the hotels to enjoy either of their meals. Nice place to meet up with friends
