Its a magnificent garden area. Lots of people watching. We were there on a weekend and there was a roughly 25 piece band giving a free concert. Just a delightful afternoon.

Find this place and you'll be happy! Beautifully maintained green gardens accented with flowering trees, plentiful benches for people watching, live music, great restaurants, friendly, and absolutely gorgeous to be as evening setter into night.

Like most Mexican towns and cities, Guanajuato has a centro - the jardin is the central part of it. Great place to sit, relax, have a drink or dinner nearby, and relax.

Very pretty and shady little plaza, which is actually a triangle, with nice planting and a fountain. The main hub in the historic centre, surrounded by eateries and opposite the theatre. Lots of people congregate here and tours, such as the calejondas, start from here.

Very pleasant center of the downtown, with locals hanging out here (and on the steps of the nearby Teatro Juarez) especially in early evening. Lots of mariachi bands, who are for hire. We found it particularly active (and fun) on a sunny Sunday afternoon and...More

Every town in Mexico has a pretty town square, but none prettier than this one. Shaped laurel trees surround fountains and a gazebo and cafes line the walkway. Mariachi banks stroll at night. A magical place.

If you are a people-watcher (and who isn't) you can while away many relaxing moments watching a parade of human activity, often embellished with a musical score and those wonderful colors of Mexico! Surrounded by plenty of restaurants with fair prices, dining comes easy. Get...More
