Small shady, tree lined triangle in the center of the city; the center of action on the weekend, complete with park benches, gardens, a band stand, singing groups, restaurants, historic sites and mariachi bands galore. You should not miss this in a visit to GTO. One of the best locations for people watching in Mexico. On the weekend, this plaza... More

Early morning, you see vendors setting up, waiters transforming sidewalks into outdoor restaurants. The restaurants are a little more upscale in this area, but still affordable. Into the evening you see college students splitting their time between the theatre and the jardin, only a small street separating them. Depending on the day, it can be either empty, with few in...

The Jardin de la Union is a great place to hang out while in Guanajuato: morning, en la tarde o en la noche! Always something going on. J and I love the afternoons as the vendors are about and the students are a roaming! Much fun to people watch. If you have lunch or dinner at Casa Valadez on corner... More

Great to sit around, enjoy people watching and all the music, either by the fountain or nearby outdoor cafes, or even by the benches.

The Jardin is where it all happens. Music, Mime, performers, Mariachis's from early morning til late late at night. Also a good please to find out about the local concerts, films, and art shows in town. Stop for a beer or margarita and watch the world go by

Grab a latte from the Starbucks in Jardin Union, move into the shade of the park and take a seat and watch. On Sunday's an orchestra often appears around noon to play in the bandstand. Gets your shoes shined, watch the people and just soak up GTO. If you have not been into any of the old world theaters, it... More

The hub of Guanajuato! Fabulous views, special statues, sidewalk entertainers, friendly vendors, tour operators and a showpiece of Mexican culture. Morning, afternoon & evening all bring a different feeling & character. We secured a tour through Agustin here; you'll find him near the information kiosk; a real character & an older gentleman with thick, manicured grey hair & a good... More
