The pruned hedges and trees make quite a pleasant jardin in between business buildings. It always seemed busy during any part of the day and evening because of the restaurants and noise in general. I walked around and "so what".

The trimmed ficus trees are spectacular and form umbrellas for walking and talking. Beautiful iron bandstand. Great old iron benches. Beautiful plantings and colorful flowers. Fountains. A fabulous place to sit and watch the scene and the people. Very unique.

The jardin is always the center of life in Guanajuato. Every time we visit we always have a smile on our faces.

THE place for people watching in Guanajuato, day or night. Take a notebook or a sketchbook, take a camera. Get your shoes shined. Listen to an afternoon concert by a brass band. Or the competing mariachis serenading diners at restaurants and cafes surrounding the square. A gathering place for people of all ages, tourists and locals alike.

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

Like many traditional cities in Mexico, you can't go past downtown without coming across El Jardin. Definitely not the biggest, or most creative areas in the city, but worth taking a stroll with your lady :D
