Time of year
It's great to find a green area with some shade & places to sit while checking out the old walled city.
A beautiful place to hang out and watch the world go by....and enjoy the breezes in the late afternoon.
With so many museums and sights nearby, Plaza Bolivar makes a great place to meet as it's on every map and is easy to find.
We were touring with a group headed by our tour guide Hugo who took us to this lovely park for a little break from the hustle/bustle of our tour. Cool, shade surrounded by shops on the outside of this park.
Full of people and activity 24/7 (more or less), but this a little hideaway from the tourist overflow of the rest of the Old Town.
