A great location to hang out, eat or shop. It is in the center of town and often has the art walk and other crafts for sale.

Of course the shop keepers beg you to come in with their snappy one liners, just the way it is. Shops were ok but enjoyed Thursday night artists that were displaying their works.

This quiet part of the peninsula is a must for all travelers seeking peace and relaxation. It has plenty of stores to visit along with restaurants, bars, gallerias and plenty of cultural activities almost every day of the week.

At first look Plaza Mijares looks like some fountains added to the edge of the city's main square. When you get closer to it you'll see the busts of seven people who were very instrumental in the establishment of this part of Baja California. The plaques are in Spanish, of course, but you can get the idea of their importance... More

Every time there is a new mayor in SJC the plaza gets a face lift, nobody seems to get it right. I have personally seen the fountain change 4 times already! now they want to change it again. Also the last time they took out the trees to make room for more concerts, now they are asking people to donate... More

There is a historic colonial atmosphere, local children playing in the square and mix of street vendors and locals are a welcome break from the party atmosphere of the resorts. The open square has a few old trees, and is bordered by... More

We walked through the plaza on our way to dinner and viewed the many busts of many notables including Mijares, himself. The plaza was pretty quiet. After dinner we again walked through a very different scene. After dark there are many more people, lights and music.

We visited Plaza Mijares on a weekday morning at around 10 a.m. so it was very quiet. There was a woman making food and we wished we had not already eaten breakfast, because it smelled amazing! She was making breakfast at a small cart for the locals. The plaza is beautiful and clean. It is in the middle of the... More
