Parque Juarez is a lovely, park-like square in the historic center of Xalapa. It is a good place to relax among the locals and enjoy the remarkable views of the surrounding mountains and the rooftops of the city.

Early mornings and late evenings are the best time to spend time here. I visited Xalapa over the weekend and there was dancing all day on Sunday till late and Saturday morning was worthy of a few hours to relax and enjoy seeing the locals make use of this beautiful space.

There's always people sitting in the park enjoying the day. A favorite of mine is to buy rice and feed the pigeons. A must see in Xalapa! If you walk away from the Main Street you can also find some great views of the city .

If the weather is good you have a fine panorama over the mountains, but most of the time it is cloudy. There is always something to see in the park, so it is nice to walk around

This park is well liked by locals and is designed with multiple levels. Unfortunately, the downtown area is clogged with slow moving traffic. The city's poor transportation system is accompanied by hundreds of taxicabs that drive non-stop trying to pick up pedestrians.

Historical park smack in the center of Xalapa ... could almost be considered a plaza. The large patio area that extends out on one side offers wonderful views of the city below ... and on the weekends it is bustling with food vendors and musicians.
