This is an attractive, smallish river (maybe 10 meters wide or so) that runs through town. Much is parallel with '12 de Abril'. It runs by the university and Parque de la Madre, among other places.
Very rocky, this is NOT a swimming or fishing river. Periodically you will see local women washing clothes in the river and drying them on the river bank. Or you will see lovers lying on the bank.
Other than that, this is a river to enjoy as you walk along side it though -- not a river to wade, swim or fish in.
