Sixth Avenue in Zone 1 - the historical center was renovated in 2010. Honestly, it was a radical transformation! Before, there were dozens of vendors, with stalls selling cheap clothing and pirated DVDs on the pavement. It was hard to move among the vendors, customers and pedestrians, but it had its charm ... Now 6th Avenue has become a pedestrian street, and have removed the multiple sales, with trees and no cars. It is another world! Depending on where you get off the bus or taxi, there are a couple of parks (but nothing special). Going down the sixth with its many shops, going by the 12th you will see the Arch Street Post Office building. There's an area of trees and you can walk to the park where the National Palace and the Cathedral are. Nearby is the Passage Aycinena (9th street, between 6th and 7th Avenue), an excellent place to go for a few drinks in the evening as it has several bars. A 19 Century building, it recalls the passage Rubio giving it the 6th Avenue. Throughout this walk there are several restaurants and shops to buy or eat cheaply.
Finca El Paraiso is a wonderful spot just 10 minutes from town on a paved road. There are facilities for events such as birthdays, weddings and religious ceremonies, or you can just spend the day with the family enjoying nature and breathing the fresh air. They have some farm animals, and also offer horseback riding and some adventurous outdoor activities.
