Don't miss this place in the evening on the weekend - lots of color, music, fun and food. More true flavor of Mexico than i ever felt at a "Fiesta" put on for tourists.

On Saturday night we took a Pulmonia ride to the historic center to see Plaza De La Republica. The streets around the plaza were all closed to automobile traffic, and was filled with restaurant seating. All of the tables were full of restaurant patrons. The square was full of vendors who were selling everything from local food to souvenirs. There... More

A short walk from the central market, with many shady spots under the trees. Shoe shiners at work. Vendors selling sweet treats from push carts. Buses chugging by filled with shoppers and tourists. A lovely pulsing plaza in the heart of Mazatlan.

This is a nice relaxing stop in the down town area. I have spent many afternoons here just relaxing, people watching. Its always fun to feed the pigeons here. Its right across the street from the cathedral.

While not as "scenic" as Plaza Machado further south, the Plaza de la Republica is still a lovely spot to walk around. My wife and I really enjoyed biking into Centro during our week in Maz (see my review of Sea Breeze Bike Rentals for more info on rentals) and visited the plaza on both occasions. The plaza is easy... More

Always loads of activity going on here. Have all your shoes shined too! Opposite the main cathedral and close to town. Lovely place to hang out with the older folks who sit around in the shade catching up on all the gossip. Love this green bit in town. Viva Plaza do la Republica!
