Travel Tips for Querétaro
There is always something going on in this plaza. One day we saw a big competition of some kind of high school ?color guards. The competition included students from at least 10 schools with a board of official judges. It was very interesting. Another day we sat to enjoy what seemed to be a large group of musicians, as more people came we realized it was a huge religious group, mainly getting together to sing, at least 250 in all. Two coffee shops are on this plaza. I frequented El Naranjo, with it's pricey, but delicious cappacino, at 25 Pesos. Edelweiss across the street has wonderful pasteries as well, but no outdoor seating.
Andodores are pedestrian only streets in the immediate historic center. Sections of them are set up with very organized system of cart sellers, as well as a myriad of shops and restaurants. The carts are all uniform, exactly the same, but give a good appearance. The andodores are lined with fountains and statues on cobblestone walkways. Often family type performers are there for hours. It appears that they are paid for by the city. At no time did we see a street performer pass a hat or accept money from anyone. Why don't they do that here? (In the U.S.)
"Sorry, no pyramids here! :)"
Modern cities are also touristic and Querétaro is more than historic monuments and colonial era churches. Here you will find commercial and financial areas, modern services in a friendly environment. A local law forbids new buildings to be taller than the old historic churches, at least in downtown.
