The historic centre is huge and contains many attractions , including a big , spacious park great for families and people of all ages.Although a lot of the shops are oriented towards tourists , you can ultimately find just about anything you could need here.

We went to see the ofrendas in the Zocalo. These particular ofrendas were in the Plaza Santo Domingo and they were fabulous.

We loved walking round the old city centre. Never once did we feel unsafe. Lots of beautiful buildings and amazing spaces. You could easily spend a day of your visit in this area enjoying the sites.
