If we weren't in Mayaguez on 29/30 Dec I'd probably rate this central square an ordinary Spanish style one. It's a rectangular square with a fountain in the middle, a Town Hall and Church on its sides and Columbus obelisk in the middle.
However, two days before the New Year it looked majestic - entire square was decorated in Christmas spirit with many decorations, all lit up, many food and souvenir vendors, a small kid's park with rides, etc...
We had a great time there along with many locals who enjoyed the atmosphere.

Great place to hang out during weekends and festivals. I was there during an after new year festival with lots of free music and food vendors. The plaza has a lots of souvenir shops as well, and generally a pleasant place to spend a weekend.

We enjoyed our evening out. Don't miss the oppurtunity to catch the plaza. In the evening locals bring tables to play card games, read newspapers and socialize. Vendors offer handcrafted wares and there's a perfect place for coffee in the plaza too.

Probably not worth a special trip to town. Interesting plaza. All the big trees are gone (Maria??) so no shade

Sorry, to say but the town looks like a war zone, to many statues, streets are in tremendous disaster, trying to finding parking are is a waste of time, the street is to narrow, parking on both side of the streets, unable to dive, when asking for directions people were looking at you if you were from the other planet. my experience was not so good.

Always a Lovely view. Great to visit early evening for coffee and t watch people go by. Plenty of places around: catholic church, Children's Library, restaurant, Ricomini cafeteria. Besides being able to admire Spanish style well kept homes.

Nice place to rest and take some pictures of the Catholic Cathedral and municipality. The trees were heavily pruned due to the damage caused by Hurricane Maria. The area was clean. You would like to stop at Fried's Cafe in one of the corers of the Plaza
