This is a unique place. There are Mariachi musicians everywhere - but like others have stated, most are not playing. I thought it was cool to see everyone dressed up in traditional Mariachi suits and it totally reminded me of the movie ¡Three Amigos!. I'm...More

It is nice to go there, have some shots of tequila with friends, either at the bars or at the Tequila Museum. Also quite enjoyable to sit and listen to the mariachis that are playing there. The only down thing about this place, is that...More

Garibaldi is well known as the place of the mariachi. It is colorful and you can see different kind of tequilas and mezcales. I hardly recommend you to go in a tour or in a big group with friends. Use uber or taxi to to...More

This was the first thing I wanted to see when I arrived to Mexico city. Probably because it was in the evening and I heard how lively the plaza can be with mariachi and luchas libres and cantinas. Well, the reality was more of a...More

We went through this plaza during a day and there was not much to see. A lot of homeless people, police and nobody else. It felt safe, but, really, not much to see.

I didn't like the square at all, the majority of the reviews are accurate and that it's grubby and over-rated. I was really looking forward to the Maricachi singing, but it was mainly a whole load of guys just standing around touting for work in...More

I think that we expected that all of the mariachi bands would be playing and we'd stroll around enjoyed my the atmosphere. It's not like that. When we were there, all of the bands we waiting for people to pay before they played so it...More

This plaza was a "must see" in most sources we consulted prior to our (me, my wife, son, his wife and 3year old son) trip to Mexico City. We all deemed it "overrated". Roving and aggressively bothersome bands of performers pounced on us throughout out...More

admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit
the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
