    The closest you can get to the jungle and still be in San Jose, this park holds tropical trees transplanted from around the country. The entrance to the park features a fountain and a statue of conquistador Juan Vasquez de Coronado. On Sundays, artists have there work on display for sale. Strangely, for such a small park, I’ve almost always seen other tourists passing through the park, presumably because it is in the midst of other attractions: Museo del Jade (Jade Museum), Edificio Metálico (Metal Building), Casa Amarillo (House of Yellow) and Museo de Arte Contemporaneo (Museum of Contemporary Arts).

    This park is directly next to (east) of Parque Morazan and also has many benches, fountains and trees by which you can relax. Many couples relax here on the weekends.
