  • Good plan for families, you can rest of everything, share with your family and friends, enjoy the nature and you can stay without shoes in the sand zone or the tree zone too. Recommended for resting on afternoons.
  • Un lugar hermoso, cuenta con un recorrido guiado gratuito que te permitirá conocer el verdadero sentido del porque es el parque de los pies descalzos.
  • It seems like a nice place to chill and relax if when you are not surrounded by loud kids!
  • A place to stay relaxed, have a good conversation or just read book.
  • Great little park to relax in for a little while. Sit down with a book or just chat with a friend.
