Plaza Garibaldi, Mexico City

2.4
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.

  • If you go, it has to be at night and on a saturday or sunday. We went twice. The first time was on a Thursday afternoon and nothing was going on. Skip the small food market on the North end. Stay in.....  more »
  • Has become rather a rough neighborhood. We drove by with our guard and literally dozens of mariachis for hire but the area is so run down that I wouldn't recommend more than a drive by.  more »
