Take a break from sightseeing at Plaza Uruguaya, a quaint plaza originally the location of the Convent of San Francisco during colonial times. Today people stop to relax on a bench and watch the life of the city go by in this small plaza. Take in the surrounding statues and greenery, or go shopping for a souvenir at the small huts that sell items, particularly Spanish books. On the outskirts of the plaza sit small cafes, or check out the nearby historical train station to see some of the standing history of the area.

Very nice city park, very well kept. It has nice old trees, historical monuments, nice park benches. It all fenced in. This is the reason why it is nice and safe.

Its basically the heart of downtown/ central... Nice places to eat all around.. Cools trinkets to buy left and right.
