great food from street vendors and cafes, lots of street sellers of hats and souvenirs but no one is pushy at all. Always bustling and lively. Great during the International Poetry Festival as loads of brilliant live music

This park felt kind of touristy, more so than plazas in other Central and South American cities, I think, but still nice to visit/hang out in for a while and people-watch, or grab a bite to eat at one of the outdoor eateries.

You have to wander through the park if only to get a feel of where you are. Lots of people selling stuff but it is how they survive. Have lunch, buy a hat, a pair of sunglasses. Why not?
