One of Mendoza’s many delightful green areas. Made for a great refuge from the heat. The hop on hop off bus tour office is on the square, just opposite the Hyatt.

We spent two weekends staying nearby, Saturday and Sunday there are vendors 5-10, at least in summer, a playground, occasional live music. We walked through around 1-2 am on a Friday night and there were kids in the playground, couples on benches, very safe.

They are currently replacing the museum, but still worth a walk around. And down every street are shops, cafes, and more. Do watch your wallet, careless tourists have been known to lose theirs.
