The beautiful Parque Juárez (also called the French Park by many Expats residents of the city) is the place where many merchants of plants, flowers and their accessories offer their goods to the visitors. Some of them are from San Miguel and many others come from different states of the country. It is something worth seeing. A stream of beauty and color in a large area that requires a good amount of time to fully cover. Joy to the spirit. Nature’s masterpieces are there to be admired and acquired. A good time to visit San Miguel.
