A relatively small but bustling center plaza. Stay for the evening and enjoy the locals as they come to play and socialize thru the night. Its a great way to experience all that Mexico really is!

I spent several days in Taxco, Mexico. The Zocalo is a very nice plaza where the tourist, families, friends meet to enjoy the evening. Very safe place. I danced at the plaza.

Many, many shops and restaurants. The week-end is full with locals. Eating, dancing and just people watching. Be aware, everything is on a hill.

Taxco has a really nice Zócalo with an impressive cathedral. At the Zócalo there a various other nice historic buildings and some restaurants with rooftop terraces and great views. Only downside is the traffic around the Zócalo - it should be restricted.

This was one of the highlights of our trip! It is by far a town that like many others preserves their culture and historical buildings. Just beautiful! Plenty to observe, eat, drink and just take in.
