This is the main plaza, it is nice an well maintained, surrounded by restaurants for tourist, a lot of people gather here so it is best to visit early in the morning and preferably in low season.

It's apparent that people come to this square to meet friends, spend time enjoying each other's company and to see and be seen. It's a lovely space with a border of box trees framing it and a bandshell in the center. The plants are beautiful and well maintained. We spent some time enjoying a coffee (Starbucks is located here) and... More

The jardin is surrounded by restaurants, which mariachi bands will perform for those dining in the restaurants. There are also a number of benches lining the jardin, so you can spectate the wide array of mariachi styles nearby without having to spend tourist prices at the restaurants.

Sit and watch the world go by; stay at boutique hotel on the square, walk off the square past this hotel (away from church) to La Vie en Rose for excellent pastry and lunch.

This meeting place of all Guanajuatans has interest in its own, like the artfully trimmed shrubs or the smart cafeterias and hotels surrounding it, and most of all the impressive Teatro Juárez and San Diego church... and always with the addition of bandas, newly-marrieds and the inevitable presence of the Tuna (university musicians).

We came back three nights in a row: once for a 25-piece brass band that played for 90 minutes; once for steak, mezcal, and a mariachi group; and once to people watch over cafe con leche. Full of tourists, mostly Mexican.

Our first day we had an afternoon glass of wine at a restaurant on the jardin. It is s wonderful place to people watch. On Thursday nights, the local orchestra plays a terrific concert starting about 6:45pm. Go early and get an outdoor table at the Luna restaurant where you can order a drink and get a free bowl of...
