My husband and I walked up to Plaza Machado and we weer so glad we did! It's a beautiful maintenence Plaza surrounded by gorgeous buildings. We grabbed lunch and just enjoyed the beauty of the area. There were street performers that added to the ambiance.

Had a great meal and the ambiance of the holiday lights were great. The banda played and seeing all the small vendors and there goods after dinner was great. Get there early to eat and enjoy the sites afterwards.

I would highly recommend taking a trip to the Plaza Machado. It is a fantastic change from the Gringo areas in the Golden Zone. Great restaurants everywhere. Go after dark.

Surrounded by eating places that feature musical groups, it provides for a nice evening out . Every night you can see locals walking around the plaza, lots of young people interacting with their peers , while chaperones sit on the benches around

Beautiful space to spend an evening, either dining out or having a beverage at one of the restaurants. Music and entertainment, plus kiosks selling local gift wear.

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.
