This is a small park in the center of the city. It's pretty. . .shady. . .and has plenty of places to sit and watch the activity happening all around the square. It's surrounded by restaurants and shops.

Viewed at night. Breath taking. A lot of vendors present, enjoyed after a meal nearby. The walk on the square was an awesome way to relax.

Make sure you spend a bit of time in the park just watching life go by. Great for reading, although be prepared for lots of street sellers who will approach you !

In the center, you'll find the pretty fountain with the sirens. Wander around and read about the flowers and other plants. One plaque explains a group from California sent some flowers a long time ago to thank locals for helping start avocado production in California....More
