  • It's not really a garden as much as a park or square in front of the famous pink cathedral, la Parroquia. It's in the center of town so you will most likely pass through it at least once! What we...

  • Great restaurants and cafes surround this peaceful city center, where couples and families gather among the tourists and everyone is happy. Great place to people watch, too.

  • Been here many times and it's as amazing as always. Today is a Monday night and the main Plaza has musicians and people enjoying the ambiance. Wonderful city to visit!
  • Beautiful park. The weekends its bustling with locals and tourists. Several mariachi bands playing...fountains with the church as a backdrop. Beautiful.
  • Small, pretty park opposite the Parrochia with lots of shaded benches and a bandstand currently decorated for the upcoming Independence Day celebrations. Surrounded by restaurants and shops with mariachi bands playing most nights adding to the festive atmosphere. A great spot for people watching at any time.
  • The center of San Miguel and THE place to people watch. Best in the early morning to have it to yourself. The trees provide a respite on a hot day. In the evening a place to go to listen to mariachi music.
  • It's a beautiful place, everything is green and the park very clean. There is an octagonal kiosk right in the middle. Full of tourists, lots of places to eat around, as well as hotels.
