Sunday!

Very crowded on the Sunday, many people on the street, everybody had a cool hangout - relaxed atmosphere, in the week a little bit of boring

On Sundays, there's a tourist market set up beside the Cathedral. We went around 4 p.m. when it was cooler and shaded. The vendors were very polite and not pushy at all. Loved it!

This is a lovely plaza, with mature trees and a comforting setting. There are some restaurants around the square, but not many. Adjacent are art galleries and the Cathedral, which are enjoyable to visit.

A must see place. It is a true blend of the past where the Cathedral and the Santa Cruz Government House, among other buildings, amaze you with its architecture and the present, with charming souvenir stores and modern coffee shops and bars. Extremely cute to see old folks seating on the benches of the plaza, sharing stories with their friends,... More

A plaza full of people sitting on benches, around the church steps, motorcycles riding around and people of all ages strolling joyfully. There are many vendors & you can get excellent fruit juice, ice cream, canapés, arts & crafts. The Nativity scene centered in the middle was awesome & many people were taking pics. Excellent & safe atmosphere!

I personally like the Santa Cruz main plaza. There are a ton of stores and restaurants in the area, and its just a nice place to sit and relax. At night the guys with the little coffee carts come around. My girls love to chase the pigeons too! Plenty of shady seats to choose from.

As I live in Santa Cruz I can't say that I don't like the Plaza although it has nothing to attract tourists and wouldn't recommend people to go and visit it if people are looking for things to do. The plaza is great if you want to relax, eat some ice cream and watch people but other than that there... More

Santa cruz is a untouristu coty. Not a lot of sites. This was just another average square. Not great but rather shoddy and nothing for the traveler. Way to kill an afternoon
