  • It was inevitable to stop me dancing with a very pleasant person who invited me. The marimba to everything that gives, the happy people dancing around the Central magnificent of the kiosks. Very quiet people and a very safe environment. Take beautiful photos of the moment and I hope to return soon.

  • The marimba Park is a special place in the personal, even for the family. This small park in Tuxtla Gutiérrez occupies the space that before - between 40 and 80 of the century past - hosted various offices and public institutions. That Apple was the only Red Cross clinic, section VII of the SNTE, hospitalito of ISSSTE, the body of water (today FAMILY), the offices of the State, the State transit communications, then there was in that space RTM, History Channel 10, system of radio and TV of Chiapas. It is one of the few parks or public squares to which families are tuxtlecas, and the only one who receives national and foreign visitors. Besides offering tardeadas dance to the sound of the marimba, the Park maintains a dozen large trees, making part of the lungs of the city, an in-planificada city, whose authorities do not charge in environmental responsibility. I.e., a small city has a Green Park, which is also a tourist attraction by marimba concerts.
