  • This small, busy square can be regarded as the real heart of the city. It is where everyone (foreigners and locals) goes to chill out, listen to the municipal orchestra, hang out with both friends and total strangers, enjoy random musical acts from street musicians, art exhibitions, have a "maní tostado": local term for toast peanuts and finally, to take the pulse of the city by soaking up its vibrant Caribbean atmosphere.
  • Cespedes Park is the main square of town with a number of important buildings surrounding it. Lots of happenings on the square and surrounding areas.
  • Beautiful place, you can have internet here, do not forget to buy cards for internet access.
  • Interesting people and park with lots of good facilities around.
