Create an itinerary including Zocalo
Watch the world pass by as you sip coffee in the city’s main plaza, known as Zocalo. On the north side sits Casa Borda, the most important non-religious building in the city. The house is now used for teaching and other activities. The rest of the plaza is surrounded by restaurants, bars, and silver shops. Cobbled streets lead off from the plaza, with the street of Cuauhtemoc containing many of the area’s best restaurants and bars. Del Arco street heads towards the popular shopping and market area. This spot provides a good place to embrace the relaxed culture of the local Mexican culture. Add Zocalo and other attractions to your Taxco trip itinerary using our Taxco travel planning tool.

  • Great place to rest after long day. Zocalo is family oriented and good place to take pictures. Enjoy tamales, ponche, bread and walk around the zocalo.
  • Downtown is the perfect place to hang around with friends, family or just by yourself. You will find delicious food, fantastic spots for pictures and local people are really kind to you. For some this is not that important but throughout our experience we found out that this is a pet friendly town.
