  • Very simple park exclusively in palm trees. Small wooden stalls along the canal are friendly. There is also a children's park with outdoor games.

  • Huge Botanic Garden. You should have seen it for sure. Under the giant palms, a meeting of the Maron community took place during our visit. Music, dance and fun people. The new shops on the side are also worth a visit.

  • Lovely park with lots of history. They completely revamped the entry with beautiful wooden cabanas where locals sell their crafts.
  • Great place to take a walk and enjoying the palms.
