This lovely very Mexican square has been newly updated. They now have benches scattered throughout for people to rest. It’s perfect to sit in the evening and watch tourists and locals alike. The shops around the square have great shopping.

The newly renovated main square is beautiful. I especially enjoy going there when there are musicians, artists, vendors, families, and tourists, all enjoying it together.

Easy Walk from the beach resort area and well worth the time. Very clean and quaint area and we did not realize how many shops that sorrounded the main square that made a fun afternoon.
