Best Gathering Place: Doce 18
"Much of SMA’s activity centers in the city’s main plaza, El Jardin Principal, where locals gather each night to gossip and play soccer. However, you can also while the hours away at Doce 18, a synagogue-turned-high-end-food-court that reminded us of New York’s Chelsea Market. Stop by Taco Lab before sampling the region’s most sought-after tequila, Casa Dragones, in their proprietary tasting room. (There are also pizzas, burgers and other international fare on offer.) Warning: Those who drink too much Casa Dragones will want to steer clear of Doce 18’s adorable boutiques".
