Plaza Garibaldi, Mexico City

1.0
Discover the center of mariachi music at Plaza Garibaldi, a historic square closely linked with Mexican folk music. Stemming from the golden age of Mexican cinema from the 1930s to the 1950s, when scenes set in the square would show leading men singing mariachi songs to their love interests, mariachi bands fill the square with song. Watch the bands play and sing in traditional dress, along with jarochos playing folks songs from Veracruz, and norteno bands playing music from the north of the country. Though rejuvenated and revitalized in recent years, the square still has a seedy reputation, so watch out for scammers and thieves targeting tourists.

  • We went as a family to listen to music and dinner. Shortly after the waiter arrived with an account of 20,000 pesos (more than usd 1000) indicating that we should pay immediately by policy. Besides, they didn't get a credit card because they didn't have internet, which was fake. In the end we were charged 25,000 pesos but we had to cover a part in cash and with a lousy deal. The music was good. The food is mediocre.

  • They overcharged us, stole money from us and charged us even for going to the bathroom. It's a lousy experience. They didn't let me want to go back to Mexico. Disappointed.
