We attended an international festival while visiting on a mission trip. The amphitheater was the focal point of the night and it proved to be a great venue. The skyline at night was breathtaking!!! Many street vendors offered various products.

Beautiful walking/running/biking trails that extend for many miles, with gorgeous views of the city as well as the bay. Plenty of security, and the area is well-lit in the evening hours. Clean and well-maintained.

We rent a bike and did this 4 km ride return 8km. It was bloody hot but still nice to bike around. Very clean place and you can go from the old town(Casco viejo) to the downtown(skyscrapers).
