The Botero statues are gorgeous. However, this is one of the more touristy areas so watch your wallet. As well, the area is a major area for prostitutes, so there are quite a few dodgy characters around. I checked into a hotel overlooking the plaza to take some amazing photos, and I can tell you that the neighborhood becomes very different after 7 o'clock...downright scary in fact, so don't visit at night.

The plaza is really cool, and worth visiting to see the statues and people watch - but be careful; even though it's the centre and one of the main tourist areas, it's full of dodgy characters, and is just two minutes away from the red light district.

It is so pretty, full of art. But is better go there during the day. There are lot of people everywhere and by night is kind of dangerous. Go there early

The sculptures of Botero are wonderful but the humanity in the park make for a wonderful time just taking it in. Have a cafe or cerveza at a restaurant overlooking the park and relax.
