This small, triangular plaza south of the Mercado Libertad was once the ideal place to tip up a beer and experience the most Mexican of music. The once-placid spot is now boxed in by a busy street, a market, and a run-down neighborhood. It's safest to visit in the day or early evening; mariachi serenades start at about $15 a song. Use the pedestrian overpass from the south side of Plaza Tapatía to avoid heavy traffic.

We've been to Guadalajara several times and really like the city. We've walked to the Plaza de los Mariachis during the day on a few occasions and we found it to be really dirty, kind of smelly and not very appealing. I think it was probably nice once but could really use spiffing up and cleaning.
