About the neighbourhood
We live in a very safe neighborhood. There is a local soccer field and park with workout equipment behind the soccer field within two blocks walk from our house. There are many small 'tiendas' or shops that sell most items that you could need. On our street there are local places to buy a quick bite to eat and two blocks down the road on Remigio Crespo there is any type of bar, restaurant, etc. you could need or imagine!
Car not needed
