“old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

the plaza takes you back in time, and is excellent to visit, Easy to get to, and there are no timeshare sales there, They have some guides there to help you get the most out of it(no cost)

The wonderful restaurants lining the Plaza with friendly waiters beckoning.....the vendors and the music during Carnaval...the electric feeling walking among the crowd...

“Take your camera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I was amazed to see all the fresh meats being prepared and all the fruits and vegetables. Did not expect a market like this in Mexico. Take a Pulmania for a scenic ride.

“Outdoor walking area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This was an outdoor area where some restaurants and bars are located. Not much happening as we were there in the early afternoon.

“Beautiful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is a beautiful plaza. We were there only during the day time. There were hardly any people in the plaza. It was like a park. The air was clean and fresh, no automobile pollution. But we thought it would be bigger than it actually was so we are giving it 3 stars instead of 4 or 5.
