It was something fun to do after dinner. Great place to people watch, listen to marimba music and observe all of the couples dancing. The park was filled with famlies strolling the park.

Lugar agradable para pasar la tarde: música de marimba, gente bailando, vendedores de comida y artesanía. Nice place to spend the evening: “marimba” music, people dancing, snacks and typical crafts.

It’s exactly what you’d expect - marimba orquesta playing, lots of people dancing, even more just listening, tons of food carts around. A great way to spend an evening!

It’s a typical charming Mexican square from the afternoon onwards. Locals arrive and hang out, chat, flitter among different groups and the sounds of live marimba music playing in the kiosk.

I totally agree with the previous answers, the museum is interesting by itself, however, spending time at the park when there is music, couples dancing, the marimba groups playing, families having fun is just plain great. I... More
