  • Yesterday I went to this typical Park of Tuxtla and I loved to see that the adult or elderly people have fun and enjoy the dance... I joined them and pass a very pleasant evening. that just have to be very careful with your place in banking because with little that you get up people sit in your place even before waking up and hopefully understand that they are always there and tourists go only occasionally or only once

  • Excellent choice for knowing the culture of Chiapas, will combine crafts, snacks, traditional marimba music in one place

  • They advertise much in tourist guides but there is nothing to do. If they're lucky they can listen marimba live. But there is no regional restaurants, handicraft shops there is nothing going on there. Do not lose your time. There are better things to do.

  • A place to see and listen to live music on the evenings. Maybe if you are brave enough dance some. Family ambient
  • Every night marimba dancing and good tasting churros rellenos to eat
  • Best place in Tuxtla to see The Marimba Music! The locals go to dance in the outdoors, it's the best. Friendly atmosphere, nice music, the main attraction is to hang around, dance and try out the tamales de mole!
  • Is a historic park with live marimba music, every night you can dance different kind of rythms with your mate or meet someone else to dance. So familiar environment, I just love it.
  • Great plaza with music and a lot people. It felt safe and lively.
