Plaza de Toros (Bull stadium)
The the stadium is mainly a bull riding place were many go and pay to see people ride bulls. Now everone has heard of these bull riding rings, however the place is very safe and a thrill is instantly acheived. Also Palmira makes a good job in maintaining the stadium and keeping it open for fellow thrill or bull riding fans.
Sugar park or Parque de la Azucar
The water park is extremely fun and exciting. The park has two exciting bid tube slides and river to relax with inflatable tubes. Also it has a medium pool for kids with bidges and water shoots and more. Also the park has a tarzan shoot with extremely fun, but watch out the water is deep. However, dont worry the park has lots of secutiry and lifeguards. Also the park has a big pool for adults shown in the picture which is very fun for swimming, if you know how to. I had the best time with family and friends in the water park because it might not be the best water park, but it satisfied me for my stay in Palmira.
Unique Suggestions: If you visit the water park, you must eat a
1. a sachipapa( its a entree of fries and little peices of sausages with a creamy delcious sauce over it. The passover is very delicous and cheap too and available in the park in the restaurants or little shops.
2. Also you must eat a cholado which is a icee which is very delicous and cheap, but try to find a person who knows how to make it good. Because some cholados are different from others and taste differently, but there all good.
3. LASTLY> you must go on the tarzan swing ..OMG!! it is very FUNNN!!!
