Camagüey is a total maze of Streets. There are few straight ones and it is complicated to find the right ones. Nonetheless a city walk is pleasant and should include this lovely square. To me it had a distinct Mexican feel to it and was totally different from the other squares in town.

Plaza San Juan de Dios is like going back in time, but although you will find several restaurants (1800 is the best among them) the animation is still missing at least during day time..
