This urban enclave is situated beyond the residential area know as La Gonzalez Suarez. It has a church, a convent and a square, and the streets are very narrow. It is a perfect place for bohemians and dreamers. There are a few bars, an important university and some small shops. The layout of the houses, its infrastructure and Guápulo's geography makes this an attractive spot for local and foreign tourists alike.
