This picturesque alley is so named because it is narrow enough for two lovers to kiss from opposite sides of the street.

Cute

It was hard to find. I was with a friend so no kissing once we got there. But we really enjoyed the walk and the pebbled streets.

Just wander around the back alleys and get lost and enjoy. This was not worth your while. Really it just seems like an excuse to squeeze a few pesos out of tourists...

We were trying to follow our map but got a tiny bit lost, which we find has more benefits than you think. I asked a local (well in my pointing to the map and sign language of a tourist) where this street was. He kindly left his group of friends and walked us to the alley.

Hard to find, very narrow alley, nice walk, no cost, unless you get a guide. Buddy will take your picture for 5 pesos. Ho hum.

it is a must in Guanajuato, specially if you are traveling as a couple, try to go early in the morning, because it is crowded and you will have to make a line. It is free.

The night I went to the Callejon del Beso I went with a group of people who had paid a troup of wandering singing minstrels. The Cervantes are much like the student minstrel groups that wander streets in Spain. These young men escorted a group of about 80 tourists through the darkened streets of Guanajuato, we sang, drank wine and... More

This is one of those unexpected surprises. We had a 12 year old boy as our guy and the story is cute. We were there as couples, so romance was in the air.

Guanajuato is filled with narrow lanes, it's part of its charm. If you walk down this little lane you'll see two house across from each other where the balconies are close enough for two lovers to kiss from each their own balconies. Someone decided that there was a legend in this and that's how it became a tourist attraction. If... More

Lots of nice callejons, this one is not so special. But there is a really great barber shop on the other side of the plaza next to the bank!!

This is definitely a Tourist Trap if I have ever seen one! It is worth maybe a brief pass by ... but the small alley tends to get crowded with tourists as it is written up in almost every local tourist guide. Also I am not sure if there is any veracity to the legend that the City claims created... More
