  • If your kids want to run bikes, run skateboard ride on the swings or just walk around. The Sound of the waves makes it much more relaxing. Very Nice place.

  • The promenade on the coast is a beautiful place located facing the Bay of Mayagüez. The problem is that it has little parking and is slightly sloppy.
