  • When it started it had driftnets, it is now simply a part more than Park, it better had let more apart to give that feeling of being in another place, also is of obligatory passage

  • This is a space located within the Park national of amusement to enter to which is must cancel the cost of the entry to the same; In addition to the rides found within it the peculiarity of this area is that it intends to recreate aspects of Costa Rican life from the beginning of the 19th century with some buildings (life-size) scale of the time as a church, a fire station, the facade of the Hospital San Juan de Dios) and the building of the Congress and a small farm is located with some animals. With the same purpose are held at different times theatrical performances through the streets of the place being that in addition to the facilities mentioned above they can be rented for private parties offering in this case catering service. There is a restaurant that is not fast food, but I'm not sure that it is currently running.
