  • Is a good place in the afternoons, very well for the traditional souvenirs in Acapulco...

  • As socket head seems to me is a bit neglected in terms of cleaning, I think that there should be a pco surveillance to a small fine people who throw garbage, there are enough stalls of handicrafts, but definitely for lovers of sweets we still have to owe much since I only found two posts with very little variety of assortment. She was nice to see people dancing danzón, but I think that the banners and advertising removed a bit of magic to the event, I understand that sponsorships, should be but it could be in a more traditional manner.
