This place is highly recommended. Not only does the building has the authentic look, but outside they have the dancing in the streets, Old traditional dancers and singers make this place a great atmosphere.

I was not impressed by the artwork in the Palacio Municipal. It seemed to be political, celebrating the Mexican Revolution with disturbing images. However, there is a free baño inside.
