Fodor's Review

Royal palms and massive mango trees fill the Parque Central—residents frequently refer to the park as the Parque de los Mangos—which also has a lovely fountain imported from Glasgow and concrete benches where locals gather to chat. The futuristic gazebo at the center of the park is a bit of an eyesore and could stand a good coat of paint. Surrounding the plaza is an odd mix of charming old buildings and sterile concrete boxes, including a somewhat incongruous McDonald's.
