Most of the park is forested, except a section that demonstrates local agriculture. There is a variety of tropical birds [flamingo, parrots, ducks]; dense native plants give a forested feel to the animal display area. The "farm" area was a series of plots with lush...More

This is a quiet, easy and secluded park that allows you to see gorgeous vegetation, and animals. At the very end of the trail, you will find two antique buildings (Casa Julian Restaurant) and a hotel (Hotel del Parque Historico).

Small, neat zoo with a variety of animals. Parrots, monkeys, and more . Even a set of smaller “farm” animals with a playground. Ideal family stop in a lot of shade. Highly recommend.

Parque Histórico is worth the taxi ride to get there ($8 from mid-town). Be sure to eat at Casa Julien, arguably one of the best restaurants in town. We had a wonderful, although not inexpensive, dinner there. The native wildlife display is excellent as are...More

Well worth a visit to view its art works and gold leaf wooden Alter. Worth getting a local guide (resident in the Church)to learn about the history and culture surrounding the construction of the Church.

I enjoyed walking through the park. The church here is beautiful and you must come to experience their Sunday services. Everyone uses the park on Sunday. It was fun!
