Along the canal you’ll find Pétalos de Sol, an ever-popular reggae/rock dive bar with walls covered in murals. Arrive before 2am (the cheap entrance fee also grants visitors a beer before the clock strikes 2) and make your way down to this funky subterranean bar for good tunes and cheap beer with a youthful and hip crowd. At 2, the bar becomes a dance club.
