Parque Paseo de los Lagos


Xalapeños escape the monstrous traffic just south of Parque Juárez in this serendipitous park, which has 3km of delightful lakeside paths, most commonly used for jogging (and making out).

At its northern end is Casa de Lago, the cultural center of Universidad Veracruzana – there are often free concerts and other events in the evenings as well as exhibitions at the weekend.
