    Very noisy and crowded Plaza. Sure that outside of the high season is nice, but what is in August, is too full.

    I think is the only park around in the whole center/ area for tourist. So is nice to have somewhere to sit down have a coke and relax while your kids play in the pirate boat.  more »
