Hello pattie; the shore excursion brochure does not mention the Plaza Machado by name, but the "Old City Walking Tour" goes right through it; we did it last October when we were there on Sapphire Princess. I highly recommend the walking tour; it's a good way to get a leisurely close-up look at the old city. After the tour you have a choice of returning to the ship, or they will take you to the Golden Zone, which is great for beaches, shopping and dining. Then you can catch an open air cab back to the ship for $10.00. Here are a couple of our photos of the Plaza:
