If you like Mariachi music this is it. A great place to review different groups if you're thinking of hiring for a party, this is the place to go!

The mariachis are all getting ready for the evening at that time, and you see them shaving, shining their shoes and ornaments, putting eyedrops in their eyes. you also see the mariachis of all ages, from tiny kids to guys that are probably great grandfathers... so funny!

I would not go to see mariachis down at the Plaza de los Mariachis anymore. I don't think that the area is very tourist oriented anymore - if you want to see and hear mariachis - go to the Parian in Tlaquepaque or to one of the many restaurants - Abajeno or Bariachi that are geared to Mariachi entertainment.
