Just one of many charming

locations in this authentic Mexican city. It is not your typical tourist trap. This is what I fondly call the REAL Mexico! Families stroll and it is like a step back in time.

I suspect most of the locals know this place as the Zocalo. It is a beautiful square with plenty of people to interact with. Artisans sell their work right there. If you would like to see a real Mexican city, come here and spend some time observing.

Yes! The kiosco of the PLaza de la Constitución was designed by Mr. Eifel. If you want to know more about this, visit the Plaza and taste a Esquites adiring the kiosko.

Simply amazing, especially love Saturday evenings with all the old folk dancing. Just have a seat and watch the people of Cuernavaca enjoy their day. Everyone is so happy, families are together enjoying life. The gazebo was built by Eifel and is absolutely gorgeous and has fruit drink vendors around its base and a band stand for entertainment. We are... More

This is a very typical place to look around and take pictures. You can get an approach to the local culture and ambience in this place. When we visited there was music. Very nice.

very nice place to look around and to hang out, and if you want to learn about the area, get your shoes shined here from one of the colorful boleros, who if you're lucky will regale you with some tales

This pocket of activity was a magnet in the busy surrounds. Filled with vendors in a good way, children playing, plenty of benches, and great affordable snacks and juices at the base of the bandstand, it is a photographr-of-life's dream come true. Joy abounds in the density of Centro!

This is an interesting place to people watch. Really starts ginning on Friday and Saturday nights. Lots of vendors, some performers, food, etc. When I was in the center of the city, I usually made it a point to walk through this just to feel the vibes of the city. Other than the people and the vendors, nothing else. It... More

We pass this square repeatedly throughout the day and there are lots of people relaxing or selling. There are some concerts in the beautiful gazebo at times. We preferred the larger square adjacent to this and enjoyed a lady who made and sold fresh churro so.

This is as colorful as it is becoming! If something is happening, it is right here: you get to see people left and right, your shoes polished, cotton candy in many colors, and the fruit stand to enjoy smoothies, juices and blendies, you are going to like it if you enjoy the view of old Cuerna. There is a lot... More
