    It is worth going to meet, live music and couples dancing around the kiosk is a very typical and pleasant place. Very pleased to see a bust of the master Zeferino Nandayapa in the Park, the greatest exponent of the marimba in Mexico and the world.

    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.
