Was out in the square last night and we came across a wonderful scene of people, actualy a crowd of people dancing to the Mariachi music. It was so fun and relaxed and there was a high degree of spontaneity

Quite beautiful and shady spot to sit and watch the world go by. Central zone and convenient to many places. Something is always going on. There were parades and festivals while were there. The area is blocked off from car traffic which is nice.

It is totally doable . The cobblestone streets and sidewalks are narrow but accessible
