We stayed in Hotel Boutique 1850, which is part of the square in which this garden is situated. The garden area is beautiful and there are lots of restaurants around, but they do unfortunately seem quite touristy. Whether you sit down at a restaurant outside or on a park bench, though, be prepared to be assailed by mariachi bands and... More

You can spend your evening here people watching. The university students dressed in medieval attire perform at the Teatro and Church steps while working the the crowed to sell tickets for their walk/sing through the streets later in the evening. It gets crowded but if you can find a restaurant to sit for awhile to enjoy it all, it helps.... More

You will undoubtedly see this plaza when you visit Guanajuato, because it is a popular drop off point for taxis when you ask to go to "centro." Otherwise, unless you are a restaurateur, there is little to see here. By Mexican standards, it's a tiny place -- dominated by overpriced tourist restaurants.

The Jardin is full of life since it's surrounded by restaurants, small shops and a few boutique hotels. Very well maintained and offers a cool shade. You'll see some vendors and music artists around. In early morning it's very peaceful and mid day and evening it's lively.

This is a small plaza right in the center of everything. During the day, it isn't much to look at, though the topiary "roof" is cool. It's a cute little shaded park that just pops up in the middle of a busy area. (I far preferred Jardín Reforma during the day. It's not listed here. I need to add it.... More
