Lots of Local Vendors

This park is very central, close to transit, and good for a fast, cheap bit of local food as well as local crafts--music, clothes, trinkets, art

Nice large park north of the Centro Histórico. I liked the fact that the park is large and green and wooded and located smack in the middle of this busy metropolis. It's a great place to get a sense of the local culture and appears popular with all sorts of groups: students, couples, families, senior citizens, etcetera. TIP: be aware... More

A good place for stretching the legs after dinner in the hotel. The 'Habitat III' symposium was going on during my time there and you could see people from all over the world; many in their local/native dress. On the weekend there were many locals, shopping at the small tent/stores, eating the grilled corn and other local delicacies, and also... More

A nice place to sit and relax, watch a local game or have an ice cream. People watching or maybe a stroll.

We rented a small apartment near the park and visit almost daily to exercise and work out on the equipment there. It is also fun to go for the art exhibits and textile stands on Saturdays. It is easy to get to by bus, trolley or cab.

With plenty of vendors who are willing to negotiate. A nice stroll to watch people and enjoy the outdoors. A good stop any day of the week.

There are a number of vendors at the one end of the park selling what you can see in any market. There is some significant construction at the other end of the park but the heavy equipment is only in that area. Plenty of benches or grass to stop and rest. If you meander it should take about an hour... More

This is a little venison of Central Park. Families come out to enjoy a weekend day. On weekends, vendors line the paths with all sorts of wares. Great place to spend a sunny afternoon.

I went for a run one morning and even with people headed to catch buses to with, the sidewalks were plenty wide for running without running into people. The paths criss-cross the park so I was able to get a run in and wander back and forth through the park. The vendors were starting to set up and there were... More
