We visited in wintertime, the plaza itself was hidden by tribunes, large skating rink and loads of wiring all around. Far too many people for our taste, so we avoided it.

The Plaza de Armas is used for big outdoor concerts at different times of the year. At these times security is tight and there are people everywhere. Concertgoers line up 4-5 hours in advance for popular artists.

Its a plaza, there is music and there is drunk people by night, the place is safe and its worth walking to it on a weekend and just enjoy the place with the locals. During the day is just another plaza.
