I have traveled to many cities and towns in Mexico. I have never seen one so clean. Big streets, whole areas just for pedestrians to walk. Restaurants and shops everywhere. Covered walkways and a fireworks show at the Cathedral on weekends. They really want to...More

Around the main square, the building facades and some of the buildings are original. There are several lovely parks and you can go into the schools and library to view the murals and architectural features. A nice half day stroll
