  • Huge park and the castle is very cool, cost 85 pesos and the line was about 30 minutes wait time.. I didn’t understand much because everything is in Spanish, but cool art inside and cool things to see, also the view was amazing, over the city and trees and the park. Outside there are lots of ppl who sell everything, food to sunglasses. Enjoy.
  • Nice and clean place to chill at. It’s huge, twice the size of Central Park! Lots of cool spots to check out inside the park with tons of vendors along the way.
  • Great place to escape the city and the heat . Tree canopy is great for those hot days. Plenty of shade and activities to keep you hydrated and fed. Street performers and trinkets all round . Enjoy the museums and zoo in an around the park .
  • Very big and beautiful park. For tourists you can find an entire area full of vendors with cheap items. The line for the castle was long but it moves quickly. Be sure to wear your sneakers as it’s a long hike but you get a nice view of the city. Remember to carry 5 pesos for the restrooms.
  • Huge park, lots to see. There are tons of vendors. Take a boat rental out on the lake, or see the castle. Lots of birds. Nice places to sit and have a snack or read. It is close to museums and other things so it's a nice detour if you want to get "out" of the city.
