There is always something going on at the Square. It is the center of the city, and where the locals come every night with their families to eat ice cream and play. If you're lucky you'll witness several excellent mariachi bands, or even live music...More

We have dined at El Jardin a few times now and we have not been disappointed. The service is impeccable and the food is always great. I love the Escargot and the Oyster Rockefeller.

I am certain like most reviewers, this is a must see. In fact, you cannot help but see it while visiting SMA. Everything in this area is beautiful. Sit peacefully under one of these well manicured trees and I hope you'll agree.

Cute shops, lovely area for all things social. We were lucky enough to be here during a wedding ceremony and procession. So much fun and joy during a special time. Great parade and a donkey carrying tequila shots for ALL!

El Jardin (The Garden, because there are so many trees) is the center of activity. There are always people on the benches, street vendors, balloon sellers, and even strolling mariachis at night. Many performances take place on the weekends. It's a great place for people-watching...More

Hi! I would strongly recommend Bajio Go, where you can arrange a shuttle to any airport (shared trip or not). New vans and trucks, professional drivers and reasonable prices (U$ 150 for a one-pax one-way trip to DF or half... More
