This architecturally unremarkable concrete plaza in the heart of downtown is usually packed with locals slurping ice-cream cones and admiring the wide gamut of San José street life: juggling clowns, itinerant vendors and cruising teenagers. It is perhaps one of the safest spots in the city as there's a police tower stationed at one corner. Fun people-watching. It's bordered by the Museo de Jade and Museo Nacional.
