The neatly trimmed trees seem to be a hallmark of Mexican plazas. Here, they define the space, from the sun-spangled gazebo in the center to the canopied walks beside the busy restaurants and cafes.

This is always a great place to visit, walk around, see the sights, hear the music and relax. While I don't recommend any of the restaurants in the plaza its self for a meal, they're a great place to relax and have a snack or a drink. Enjoy the mariachis.

It is one of the most beautiful sites in Guanajuato. There is so much going on around it; there´s lots of restaurants, bars, monuments, callejoneadas, music, artistic expositions and more.

Small but charming plaza with lots of shade for relief from the heat of the day. My favorite time of day to enjoy the plaza is morning. Grab a cup of coffee and a pastry and sit on one of the many benches and enjoy!

We loved listening to the music. We also enjoyed good appetizers and dinner at one of the restaurants. Loved the experience.

Splurge on not-that-great food and slightly-over-priced beer to enjoy the music and people watching in one of the many outdoor cafes in this square. It's an evening well-worth your time.

This is the place where everyone meets during the afternoons and nights. It is where you can star "La Callejoneada", with the "Estudiantinas" Nice Restaurants around

This is a great plaza, across from the Teatro Juarez, a major cultural/theatre and music venue in Guanajuato. Although it is surrounded by restaurants, mostly touristy, it is a wonderful place to people-watch, to hear the sounds of the mariachi bands or the lone musician, and to relax on the numerous benches under the trees.

All colonial cities of Mexico have central Gardens called Jardins and they are like the living room of the city. The locals come down and sit in the afternoon and talk to their friends and family. This jardin is a great example of a beautiful central garden.

Jardin Union is a great place.nice Plaza , though small, it lined with trees, there's fountains and a ironwork gazebo. It's surrounded by restaurants and in the evening it is swarming with activity. You can see and hear mariachis. Great atmosphere. It's a gathering place. So if you want to experience Mexican music , it's a great place to be.... More
