Super fun place to visit in the evening - restaurants and artisans all out in the street. At Christmas the lights and decorations were beautiful.

In this plaza you can sit outside in candel light and listen to live musicians perform relaxing elegant music. The plaza has about 6 different restaurants for you to choose from. I enjoyed this night out.

Plaza Machado is a place to visit in the evenings. There are lights and several bands playing music. There are a lot of good restaurants and art galleries around the Plaza.
