Wonderful plaza in a wonderful city. Take a seat in the park setting and enjoy the moment. If possible, go on a Sunday and walk through the vendors and the vast array of street food. Have a panucho and cold drink.

Lucky to catch the Mayan ball game on a Friday night. Get there at about 7.30 to ensure a good seat. Really good atmosphere with mostly Mexican audience. Show is interesting & very well presented as well as being free.
