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

This place is just overrated. But there's no harm to visit this place. It's one of the Guanajuato experience.

Well, it depends upon the ambiance around you to enjoy this place. I had my wife by my side when i visited this street. A very small narrow street, always filled with tourists and sellers. Your trip to Guanajuato is incomplete if you do not kiss your partner at this street. You will find a number of urchins at Plaza... More

I went with my mother, sisters and nieces. We went at night with a group of musicians (Estudiantinas) and they sing all around the town, you follow them and they tell you all the Legends of the town. (The alley of the kiss has a story) It was fun!! They are called Callejoneadas.
