I stayed at a hotel right on Jardin de la Union, and there seemed to always be stuff going on, no matter what time of day. Jardin de la Union is full of shops, restaurants, and entertainment! It is very centrally located and near the cathedral. I had the chance to eat at several restaurants around here, and they were... More

This is a lovely little garden area which faces onto Teatro Juarez and a church on one side and is surrounded by restaurants on the others. It gets pretty crowded at night too. I'm not sure if there is much to do there unless you eat at one of the restaurants but it's definitely worth taking a look at.

The small plaza is surrounded by touristy restaurants but is a place where al sorts of people hangout. You can enjoy the mariachi music in the restaurants and the band that occassionally plays in the kiosk in the center of the plaza. While not spectacular it is well worth a visit.

You need to stop by for more than a couple pictures, nice atmosphere despite the amount of people that always is around.

Amazing, very European area, we were reminded of Rome!! Can't wait to go back!! Restaurants, tours, ice cream and music over the top. We stayed right next to the square and waking to church bells in morning was delightful!

It's impossible to miss this place as this is where everything happens. The art is sold, people offering tours, the ballet theatre, the mariachi bands...it's all good!

This appears to be the place everyone gathers especially in the evening to listen to music, people watch, eat, etc.

Beautiful Jardin with so much going on. Live music everyday while being surrounded by many restaurants and hotels. Many locals and tourist just sit on the benches just to relax.

This is a very pretty square with lots of people, restaurants and on Sunday's in the gazebo music. I watched and listened twice to a huge orchesta. People danced and sang and it was entertaining. Great area for people watching. All the restaurants have Mariachis.

Just across the street from the Teatro Jaurez, the Jardín de la Union is truly an oasis in the middle of the historical center of Guanajuato. There are numerous plazas in the city, but, by far, this one is the best. Numerous restaurants line two of the three sides of the Jardín. The overhanging tree branches creates a fairytale-like atmosphere... More
