The park is beautiful but a bit expensive. If you go swimming make sure you take a swim cap or they will hit you up for another 3.000 Pesos for a shower cap and ask you to wear it in the pool.

I'm not sure if the night time lights display is just during the Christmas holiday season, but it was a fun added element to an otherwise pleasant park with several interesting attractions. I recommend entering the park around 5 pm so you can experience it...More
