Starbucks on the plaza, great for people watching and near restaurants and shopping areas. My fav is the perfectly pruned Laurel trees that shade the plaza.

Our hotel Luna was on this square. Lots of restaurants, some a bit pricey, but the trees were impeccably trimmed and the walkways were spotless

If you are alone and don´t want to spend the time alone just go to this place. You will always find someone to talk with. This place also offers varios reataurants and bars with bands an mariachis. On Sunday you can just sit on the bench and listen to the life music of mexican orchestra.

Don't be afraid to buy a ticket for a few bucks and walk around the town as the student sing and dance. A very nice experience that you will not forget!

If you want to stay in the center of town, you should get a hotel near or on this lovely plaza. Beautiful gardens, lots of restaurants and sidewalk cafes, music at all times. If you are staying on the outskirts of Guanajuato, it would be best to take a taxi, since the surrounding streets are pedestrian-only (part of the beauty)... More
