Landmarks by La Villa Mall
The red Hotel Las Aguilas
on top a prominent green mountain the volcanic cone Las Arenas is visible from far. So is La Montana del fraile which is even more visible. Both are close to the freeway exit 36 that gets you to the shopping center.
Why so easy to get around inside?
The single story mall is arranged like a grid with 2 parallel lanes with two entrances from the parking lot above ground. It has three passages that cross.
Friendliness is virtually the center's motto. Even late at night at the supermarket tills at closure time by 10 p.m.
How get out then?
There is a back-way near the toilets, but better hurry...
