We went to the plaza in search of El Meson de Chucho Roto, a restaurant where we enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch. Because of the rain, which we hadn't expected when we planned our trip, I didn't see much of the plaza. However, tomorrow it's supposed to clear up, and I expect to see this & more of all of...

Very nice quaint plaza and people watch. There is free wifi - a plus! There are many restaurants to choose around. Stores in walking distance. There are gentlemen offering tours (mostly in Spanish only - hard pressed to find English tours). Good place to get your shoes shined and relax.

Plaza de Armas is a place that is alive with restaurants, visitors and locals. It has a beautiful fountain in the middle, and restaurants, shops and hotels surround it. There is always something going on. Photograph exhibitions, folk music, etc...

This is a favorite gathering place for families. There are restaurants and bars alongside the Plaza with live music. On the weekends, there are often free concerts, and during the day on Saturday there is a farmer's market. It is great place to people watch, drink, dine and shop.

This place is good for people watching and sitting a spell. The gardens are lovely, and at night it is (while we were there) transformed into a more lively venue. The only reason it does not get an 'excellent' from me is the lack of truly good food options. That's fairly typical in Mexican central plazas, but it would be... More

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.
