The whole experience was amazing: the crowded plaza in front of the palace, the beauty and architecture of the Palace, the atmosphere, the public and the show! The show was very professional, colourful, full of energy, and some pieces were of an outstanding beauty. Bravo!

The Ballet Folklorico is as much if not more about the costumes as its is the dance, so treat yourself to a good seat. Otherwise, I would advise skipping it.

Very talented dancers, it is folkloric ballet, not classical or modern. I enjoyed typical dance styles and costumes from different regions of Mexico, it was great way to discover the country and its traditions.

The palace is an amazing structure just to visit and enjoy! Beautiful architecture outside and inside. The theatre is also very impressive, and the show itself is very well done. Certainly worth it just to spend some time in this theatre and building!

This beautiful park was once the playground for the

the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
