See how locals and tourists alike gather at El Parque de las Palapas for music, food, leisure, and entertainment. The park serves as a hub of outdoor activity in the downtown area, where artisans sell their handicrafts, food vendors offer a variety of well-priced snacks and local dishes, while trees and cool drinks keep the heat at bay. When you reach the large stage in the middle of the park, check the schedule of shows for both children and adults. Sundays in particular are very crowded and lively.

The place comes alive during the dusk time. The seedy -illegal- activities - loud and not truly drunk guys are around. We suggest fo not come here with kids. more »
Just go there and find some cheap food, you like to eat or taste. Food is very cheap, so don't have to high expectations. In general, the people working there are very friendly and try their best to help you
Safely enjoyed local lifestyle family food and fun. Visited twice, daytime and night. Get your massage here! Food, street corn, sweets, and trinkets. Loved gelato. Colorful fresh market. Yummy!
