“magnifico ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Although we could not attend the concert as it was already full, we were lucky enough to be privied to a special visit given to us by the security guard. It was during the rehearsal of the orchestra and we watched them for a few minutes from the highest balcony. Very impressive place with its huge chandelier and beaqutiful fresco.

“European Style Theatre, not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

The archeticture of Teatro Peon Contreras is not to be missed. Its absolutely stunning. You would never think you were in the middle of a Mexican theatre. It is grand and photo ready! If you have time, definitely go see a show here. The seats are rather small but the admission price is next to nothing compared with other prices in bigger cities. I applaud Mexico for making cultural activities available and affordable.

“Glorious Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

What a wonderful venue to enjoy the Orquest Sinfonica de Yucatan in. A truly beautiful building that has been restored to it's former glory. Worth a visit just to see. Even better, go to enjoy a first class performance at a very reasonable cost.

“A lovely place to hear a symphony”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This place is worth a visit at anytime. During the day the guard will escort you through the building for a few pesos. A beautiful old opera house. He even took us up onto the roof to overlook the city. Do tip him.

“Like Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

This is something you must design your trip around. Great performance, gracious evening, like my first trip to the old Paris opera!
