You need to visit. Great eateries on the plaza, lots of activity, people watching, Theatre , often live music, on the weekends the streets are blocked off to vehicle traffic. Feels like a small town in Europe.

Plaza Machado is a step back in time. The plaza is preserved/restored to the beauty of years past. Dining along the plaza, listening to music, browsing the vendor offerings all make for a delightful experience!

A lively place in the evening. Especially on Friday night when there is music and art vendors. This is a good place to start or finish a walk through the old city.

Nice, smaller plaza surrounded by several good restaurants. Great place to people watch and a popular location for weddings. Right next to the Angela Peralt Theater so it is convenient for dinner and a live show.

We love to pile in a fish truck and head to Plaza Machado to enjoy their good restaurants. Always a lively scene, sometimes with dancers, performers, live music and families strolling after dinner. Don't miss this charming spot.

We love this place and the service is always excellent! I had a Greek salad that was superb and my friend loved her Caprese Salad. We'll be back!

The Plaza Machado is in Centro Historico and is about a 30 minutes north along the coastal road, the Malecon. A nice taxi or pulmonea ride - but to far to walk.
