If you like music, especially mexican music. Just come to Jardin de la Union and you could listen to it everywhere. This is a good place to hangout, it's right at the centre of the town infront of teatro juarez.

The Jardin de la Union is a typical colonial plaza, or central square, except that it's more a triangle. It sits between the Teatro Juarez, the Basilica, and the University.

When you are at Jardin Union (Zona Centro), you may hear Mariachi. I got into a full-filled conversation with Andres and Pedro who were at Jardin Union as part of their Mariachi band Santa Rosa.

This is the central area of Guanajuato. Restaurants and outdoor cafes line the Jardin. There are also mariachi bands and other performance artists in the area. You can't miss it. My hotel was front and center of this square and couldn't have been more pleased.

This is one of the many plazas around the historic area of juanajuato. There are lots of restaurants here to relax and if you choose the right restaurant you can see the Juárez theatre, which you could look at for hours and never get tired of it.

A great plaza with a lot of options for dinning and relaxing around the park. The ficus trees are huge and provide shade throughout the day.
