Queretaro's main attraction is a quaint plaza with lots of bustling activity. In the middle is the esteemed "Fuente de los Perros" (Fountain of the Dogs". The restaurants are tourist traps and you're better off venturing a few blocks away for better options.

The cutest little fountain with 4 little dogs providing the water! Its a great place to come and sit and people watch. In the evening there are Marachis around playing music. Also there are many free concerts in the square. Sometimes there are protests or rallys outside the government offices, but I have never seen any problems and there appear... More

The Plaza is in the downtown area of Queretaro and seems to be a main area for restaurants and shopping. There was a Jazz Festival going on while we were there. Very nice and kept very clean.

Plaza de Armas is a small and pretty plaza in Queretaro’s downtown. There are things going on pretty much every week, month at very least (small expos, music presentations, etc). The two restaurants that are at the farthest part of the plaza are great places to eat Mexican food (“1810” and “Chucho el Roto”). Besides “1810” restaurant, “Galeria Libertad” usually... More

A lovely, clean plaza in the Centro Histórico de Querétaro. The fountain in the center features four dogs with water coming out of their mouths! Stop by for dinner or cocktails one evening and enjoy the music provided by the restaurant. Pick a restaurant that actually has people in it eating a meal or having a coffee, a cocktail, or... More
