Queretaro is one of the most pleasant cities to know in Mexico by walking. Plaza de Armas is very central and is full of attractions, mainly at night, like mariachis, people dancing. There's also many restaurants around the Plaza. You need to do this by walking. In each quarter, Queretaro show a new beauty. A very nice and very recommended... More

we love to sit at the Cafe Marron and watch life pass in this exquisite square. Where else would you see a fountain with statues of dogs spouting water!

Queretaro has many plazas but this is definitely one of the most lively. It was bustling at all hours with people wandering through the park in the center and sitting near the dog fountain. Great restaurants line this plaza as well.

This plaza and everything around are just beautiful. It's a good option to walk around the streets and find your own way. At every side you will find the beautiful architecture preserved, esculptures, and fountains decorate the historic downtown.

Recommend eating at places just off tthe plana, such as The Creperie, Fabrica de Chocolate for hot chocolate and Churros, and the Italian pizzeria next door. There is a nice fountain with benches to sit and... More
