Great place to hang out, people watch, drink, eat, listen to Mariachi and Banda live. Hotel Luna Bar is the best location for music and drinks at night.

I love walking around there, and last weekend I went for a cup of wine with friends and we enjoyed conversation and a mariachi band in a restaurant in the Jardin.
