  • It is a must-see in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, a very central place, where we can enjoy the evenings of marimba where people gets to dance, also you can eat a delicious Cup of corn, appreciate the crafts that offer and spending a late night nice. Also opposite there is the Museum of the Marimba, which is very interesting by that exhibit the history of the Marimba, as well as musicians who have distinguished themselves in this area.

  • A nice place to go when in tuxtla, especially in the evening where you can listen and dance to the sound of the marimba
  • Great place to visit and a must in Tuxtla Gutierrez. They play marimbas everyday. Make sure to go at around 5-6 to get a place to sit so you can enjoy the dances in first line.
