The beautiful chalk bottomed, square topped (no kidding) trees that line the street surrounding the garden can't hide the beautiful sounds, smells and people of this central place in Guanajuato. Bands are waiting to play at your request or someone else's :) There are excellent but pricey for the region restaurants, street vendors selling everything from fresh corn to jewelry. The best mojitos are found at Luna Bar hands down!! If you want to eat overlooking the area, there are plenty of places with balconies over looking all of the beauty the city center has to offer. Dinner and music goes late into every night. You will see the very old, the very young, couples in love, students at the University, every age but the one thing they all have in common is there sincere kindness. Lovely lovely Guanajuato.

Small shady, tree lined triangle in the center of the city; the center of action on the weekend, complete with park benches, gardens, a band stand, singing groups, restaurants, historic sites and mariachi bands galore. You should not miss this in a visit to GTO. One of the best locations for people watching in Mexico. On the weekend, this plaza is really lively well into the late night.
