Went with friends and our young daughters. The dancing and costumes are spectacular, and showed periods of Mexican history through dance. We loved the show. Highly recommend. The building is spectacular in itself.

One simply cannot praise enough this amazing ensemble which Amalia Hernandez established in teh 1950s, more or less at the same time as Sonia Osorio established her Colombian Folkloric Ballet.

the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
