Large convention space filled with books from publishers across Latin America. During mid-day, it was exasperatingly crowded with school children. Evenings are still busy but manageable.

It's a good place for conventions, the parking lot is huge but expensive. It's a complete chaos with all the traffic around the area, but overall ok.
