  • If you want to enjoy a really nice view of the city, this is the place. It is better to take a cab to go there. It is great for walking or running cause is a large park. 
  • Everywhere, even inside the Presidential Palace there are replicas of hummingbirds of various colors and sizes, ´ in this park with a bit of luck on the outskirts you'll see some different than we have in Brazil, and Ecuador as the view is always a postcard.

  • great nature place
  • Ok
  • Beautiful sunset
  • Spectacular park. All a forest reserve that allows you to see and interact with nature. Available tours easy, wide and very fun to make while observing the flora and fauna. I recommend take umbrella to protect from the rain or the Sun.
