  • Nice place, big, to sit and take pictures. Around them they sell coffers, there are shops and atMs. What I can't believe is that food vendors don't have tacos, mostly they're very bad burgers and hotdogs being that the good thing about Mexico is tacos.

  • This is the place to chill when you explore downtown San Miguel. Cool, shaded and surrounded by some of the most historically interesting edifices in town.  more »

  • Great meeting spot. Although it's sometimes jam packed, I always find my friends. Our iconic and much loved central park! Also on some nights of the week, in one of the square corners, u can find a vendor selling quesadillas with bacon and chicken cutlet and grilled tomatoes and onions. Some of my favourite late night street food in town.
  • Such a central place to meet old friends and make new ones.. such a comfortable green space with plenty of seating and shade..there is constant action, but one can enjoy the solitude that is present as well..the tourist information office is just steps away as are numerous restaurants.. entertainment includes, bands, jazz musicians, juggling, a close view of the Catholic Church, The Parroquia, with activities such as weddings on the weekends..just be present and enjoy the moment...
  • Great place to meet up with friends, meet new friends and people watch. The views around the plaza are awesome!
  • Beautiful San Miguel. Love it. Nice cafes, nice restaurant for all budgets and tastes.
  • The place to hang out in SMA! Some mention that there are Spanish only trolleys near this garden. I found a bilingual trolley over at Templo de San Francisco on Juarez street. The bilingual tours are at 9:40 and 1:40.
