A pleasant, shady plaza in front of the cathedral, filled with trees, people chatting and playing, little kids with their mothers, birds. A great place to relax before or after exploring the winding paths of the market place with all the fruits and vegetables and...More

Disappointed with number of cheap souvenir sales people and the "come in" calls of shop owners, did not find this square "intimate and charming".

This plaza is absolutely charming. Seems always busy and popular, filled with energy. There are many places of interest around the Plaza Borda. It is nice to choose one of the cafes as your stop. Silver shops have impressive selection of souvenirs and jewelry.

This plaza is absolutely gorgeous. At night time it can be filled with families, music and dancing. The star lights in the trees are so pretty, definitely one of the nicest in Mexico.

I, along with my family, loved hanging out at the Plaza Borda for a few hours. It is beautiful and wonderful for people watching and shopping for silver if that is your thing. The interior of the Catholic church is capable of causing sensory overload....More
