Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES is an easy-going agricultural town, pleasant enough but without any great attractions. At the north end of Colón, eight blocks from the orderly Plaza de Armas, is the colonial Parroquia Perpetuo Socorro, a church whose handsome colonnaded cloisters enclose a flower-filled garden. Otherwise, the town is really just a jumping-off point for the Parque Nacional Laguna del Laja.
