We enjoyed eating dinner and people watching in the plaza. A lot of the local vendors come out in the evening. Highly recommend!

Like most Mexican towns, the plaza is the go to place for chilling out, partaking in some people watching, and enjoying the colonial architecture. Plaza Machado is no different!

Restaurants around are delicious and also the people are very welcoming and attentive we felt like we were at home here. Many police officers around. So I felt kind of safe.

The Plaza Machado is in Centro Historico and is about a 30 minutes north along the coastal road, the Malecon. A nice taxi or pulmonea ride - but to far to walk.
