The Basics

Plaza Garibaldi can be visited independently or as part of a Mexico City sightseeing tour. The square has a reputation as a tourist trap with high prices and petty crime—but it's also possible to find good drink deals, and increased security has improved the look, feel, and safety of this popular destination. Nighttime Plaza Garibaldi tours typically spend a few hours at the square, and select tours incorporate the square alongside lucha libre and mariachi.
