A great plaza with a lot of options for dinning and relaxing around the park. The ficus trees are huge and provide shade throughout the day.

Definitely the hub for activity in the evenings and on weekends! Plenty of choices for sidewalk cafes and restaurants and roving entertainment by the Mariachis. Whether for a cerveza or a margarita, a great place to enjoy some people watching.

One of Mexico's most beautiful squares. Hire a mariachi band to serenade you and yours over a meal in one of the many restaurants along the Jardin. Very romantico. Be aware that the square can be very crowded in August when much of Mexico takes their vacation.

Not a "must see" like the museum or the opera house but a very very nice Jardin. We didn't eat at any of the restaurants but they were certainly busy.

I am sure that there are more impressive plazas, piazzas, platzs, and parques around the world, but this is one of the most picturesque little metropolitan green spaces I have ever seen. In addition, I have never seen ficus benjaminas this gigantic! What a beautiful canopy of lush, verdant greenery!. Who would ever have imagined that this small intertwined, multi-trunked... More

When I was tired to do more sightseeing, but did not want to stay inside, I just sat one of the bench with a cup of coffee, listening to the on-going mariachi songs, just watching people. Was a relaxing afternoon. The Starbucks nearby has so free Wifi (inside of the store), so I was able to skype with the family... More

The beautiful chalk bottomed, square topped (no kidding) trees that line the street surrounding the garden can't hide the beautiful sounds, smells and people of this central place in Guanajuato. Bands are waiting to play at your request or someone else's :) There are excellent but pricey for the region restaurants, street vendors selling everything from fresh corn to jewelry.... More
