A circle with two flat arches bent over it. A simple design, but what a marvelous sight. The spacious setting with the parque La Sabana on its Eastern side is also contributing to the effect. A modern structure from 2004. I understood a gift from...More

Went for USAvCRC. Spectators make the atmosphere but the track killed some of it. Walking in, massive crowds and can't see where you step and you suddenly drop because there are steps. Not tall steps, but enough to kill your knee or ankle. Simple purse...More

This modern stadium constructed primarily for soccer is an architectural marvel of simplicity. Twin crescent-shaped roofs shield fans from scorching sun, yet allow cross ventilation and an open concept. Constructed in 2011, it is Central America’s first modern stadium seating 35,175 visitors. There’s a 1,700-square-foot...More
