Stroll through the quaint streets of Zona Romantica, the traditional Mexican part of the old town, packed with shops, art galleries, bookstores, cafes, and restaurants. Smell the aroma of handmade tortillas wafting from streetside taco stands. The oldest farmers’ market in town offers a selection of freshly baked goods, handmade clothing, jewelry, and crafts. See the whole town gather on Friday nights at the recently widened Basilio Badillo Street. Meet local artists and get to know Mexican folklore through shows and games at the park. A colorfully lit wooden pier featuring pedestrian pathways, ample seating, and a waterfront promenade serves as a good place to sit and ruminate after a long stroll.
