  • Best square in Santiago de Cuba, also best WiFi signal we found in the whole of Cuba and we could actually download some podcasts on the signal. We spent a few afternoons siting in the Casa Grande terrace drinking slightly inflated crystal beer. Good place to people watch but a lot of beggars come round the park in the evening and some are quite persistent.
  • Incredible place to walk and explore full of cuban people with lot of Cuban Guaguanco, and also there is so many coffe shops and the famous Bodeguita del Medio near by this park!!👌🏼
