Excellent to stroll and spend an entire afternoon. Window shopping and having a Margarita and any of the typical restaurants on this street. All shops and most rest close early. (Around 9 PM ). In general I found it to be a safe area.

All our visitors love Tlacapaque and the pedestrian center, Calle Independencia. Try to arrive after 10 in the morning so you can shop and go to the pottery museum. Then enjoy one of the wonderful restaurants.
