We slept one night at this point. People are curious and very friendly, if you are not interested in talking about your trip or wanting to see your car, this is not the place to park.
You can sell handicrafts with prior permission requested by the mayor's secretary, we were charged $ 10,000 COP.
In the corner there is a cafe, you can go for a drink and ask for the WiFi password.
There are public toilets in the sports center, but it is approximately 700m from the park. There you can also take a free cold shower during the day, with prior authorization from the lady who manages the sports center pool, she lives in the house next to the pool.
Around the park there are restaurants, markets, veterinary, drug stores, hardware store and electronic equipment store.
To sleep at this point it is better to announce beforehand with the police and clarify if something is going to be sold or not.


Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.

You can sleep here fine as long as it’s not Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. It gets quiet from about 10-6. People are super nice and VERY curious. If you don’t feel like socializing, you won’t like it here. Not the most preserved or cutest town on the coffee country, but the atmosphere is much nicer. Enjoy.

Dormimos una noche en este punto. La gente es curiosa y muy amable, si no te interesa hablar de tu viaje o que quieran ver tu carro, este no es el punto para estacionarse.
Se pueden vender artesanías con permiso previo que se solicita con la secretaria de la alcaldía, a nosotros nos cobraban $10.000 COP.
En la esquina hay un café, puedes ir a tomar algo y pedir la clave del WiFi.
Hay baños públicos en el polideportivo, pero queda aproximadamente a 700m del parque. Allí también puedes tomar una ducha fría gratis durante el día, con autorización previa de la señora que gestiona la piscina del polideportivo, ella vive en la casa que queda junto a la piscina.
