See how locals and tourists alike gather at El Parque de las Palapas for music, food, leisure, and entertainment. The park serves as a hub of outdoor activity in the downtown area, where artisans sell their handicrafts, food vendors offer a variety of well-priced snacks and local dishes, while trees and cool drinks keep the heat at bay. When you reach the large stage in the middle of the park, check the schedule of shows for both children and adults. Sundays in particular are very crowded and lively.
