The place is just average, there is not mucho to see although it is a Magic Town, a denomination given by the tourism office from México to those places that have historical value. It is just ok.

This is where you will want to sit and relax and just watch how the locals live and interact. You have no choice but become part of the slow paced environment.

Love to sit here and watch people coming and going. Lots of activity to include watching things before sold on the street. It’s a great place to hear the church bells.

It's the only one plaza in the world with octagonal shape and allows people walk in circles arround it. The kiosk and the clocks of the tower were brought from Paris around 1800.

We stopped by because it is a Pueblo Magico in Mexico. We briefly stopped by and strolled around the plaza. We had coffee in a small shop by the plaza.

It is large, comfortable and full of interesting friendly locals. And friendly can be used to describe Mascota generally.

The plaza of Mascota, a newly designated Pueblo Magico is a typical Mexican plaza. It is very charming with the fountains, benches, shops and cafes around it. The church is beautiful, too. A visit to this little town is a step back in time It...More
