Centro Histórico is the absolute crown jewel of this magnificent city. You’ll fin the best Boutique Hotels, great Mexican Restaurants and amazing old mansions. Stay in Centro, you won’t regret it!

Quite a pleasant centro with fine architecture. Loved how clean and well maintained everything was, garbage cans everywhere. Parking for us was a slight challenge but not bad. Very easy to get around with great pedestrian areas.

Be sure to drop by on a late afternoon to see locals dancing in the plaza! A wonderful experience. Lots of local cafes and restaurants in the area. I did not notice a single Starbucks!!
