This is the heart of the town. Everyone strolls through and gathers here everyday, the place is gorgeous with a park like setting. Very well manicured with seating in the shade. Restaurants and bars surround the plaza and the famed Parroquia anchors it.

I can never get enough to look at the Parroquia and spend time at the Jardin (Zocalo). It is one of the best places in town to hang out and engage in people watching and enjoy the liveliness of this place.

Do you want to to feel how was a Sunday in old Mexico? Go to the Zocalo (and don't go in to the restaurants); just walk around, buy an ice cream or some candies, it is a lovely place to pass time.
