Florida Shopping Mall A referent for fun, shopping, and relaxation in the northwest sector of the city. A great natural park, home to 204 stores, restaurants, and serv-ice-dedicated businesses, as well as seven movie theaters, a supermarket, and department stores.
The Street Of Fine Dinning This well-known area of the city, located in the El Poblado neighborhood, centers its attractions on its restaurants, discotheques, and bars, all with intense non-stop day and night activity.
