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.

  • At the beginning the atmosphere can overwhelm because it is a very busy by the local site, but once find site at one of the tables and try the most authentic Mexican food you will see that it is worth. You can also ask in different positions. That I liked most was kitchen Poblana La Lupita, delicious everything, very friendly and attentive waiter and unbeatable price (50 pesos by a menu with water, main dish, soup of the day and tortillas). There is usually live performances and activities.

  • On our last night in DC salimos to walk close to the hotel to find a place to eat. So it was that we found this place, more than a park, where they were games, lights, books, food, and restaurants around carts stands. Pity that not I took a risk to eat some crepes they were delicious.
