I love this square and the perfectly cut trees around it, as well as the athmosphere that is so joyful! Mariachis singing, estudiantinas gathering early at night for the callejoneadas. The place is romantic, especially at night, you can get a drink or a meal...More

Beautiful place, surrounded by excellent bars and restaurants, and right across the street from Teatro Juarez. If you are eating outside, however, be expecting people to come up to you, trying to sell songs or miscellaneous items. Nonetheless, this is a must see.

This is a square that is closed to foot traffic. The real attraction are the surrounding cafe's and the people who come out to play at night. It is a nice and safe square.

Lots happening in this little square; restaurants with outdoor patios, entertainment, wandering musicians, shops and hotels. You'll also find a Starbucks here! There are lots of trees (with low foliage) to provide shade during the hotter months, otherwise it can be a bit dark. You'll...More

El Jardin is cool and draws visitors and local to see it.... Very nicely cared for. Walk thru in 5 minutes, sit at an restaurant outside talk, enjoy some wine and watch happiness unfold.
