The square is constantly alive with music and dance. Whether it is mariachi bands, Dance bands or the youthful Callenjeneade, the beautiful centre of Guanajuato is the focus of the city.

This is the Meeting place for tourists and locals. There is always something going on in the Jardin. The trees are perfectly trimmed and there are restaurants on both sides. The restaurants are mostly tourist traps with average food. However they have outside seating where you can watch all the goings on. The teatro Juarez is across the street and... More

Well, if you go to Guanajuato you will have to walk around the Jardin because of its location and because of the restaurant selections. This is the place that locals meet, the place to hear roaving mariachi bands, there are several good restaurants, a Starbuck, hotels, wandering minstrals, the Theatre and plenty of local activity, including the famous Cervantinas wandering...

You can spend an entire day and evening enjoying the hustle of bustle. Music almost all the time. Terrific restaurants.

This is the place to be for restaurants, to have a drink while you see the people walking by. Most shops are in the streets around the plaza too.

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.

A manicured hedge of tree tops surround the garden and its gazebo where mariachis often gather. People line the park's benches, vendors circle hawking their wares, and street cafes offer... More

Jardin de la Union is the Heart of Guanajuato. A place where young and old stroll, a place to sit and watch others stroll, a place to enjoy municipal music from the bandstand and mariachi bands serenading people at the outdoor restaurants. Day and night, "the" place to be!
