London, United Kingdom
August 27, 2005
On the shop side, we found lots of good quality glassware, ceramics, entire dinner sets, clothing and other regional crafts for sale, but they were fairly high in price. There’s no entrance fee for the Instituto.
Next door, at Parque Agua Azul, the entrance charge is 4 pesos per person. It’s a vast park, busy with families with young children. There are paddling pools, a butterfly house, orchid house and various caged bird exhibits. The café’s fare isn’t too inspiring, so I’d recommend bringing a picnic or planning to travel back to the city for food.
