Guanajuato, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
Welcome to La Malagueña, a getaway that will enthrall your senses and nurture your spirit. Our place is ideal for the seasoned traveler who prefers the comforts of home combined with the uniqueness of a true Mexican experience.

Our home was originally built in the 18th century and has been remodeled several times, the last time by the renowned Mexican artist Juan Ibanez. Its construction is of stone and pine with copper accents. It takes advantage of the Mexican sun and sky and its position on the most beautiful square in Guanajuato - with French doors opening onto the fountain below and a wonderful rooftop garden in which you can sit and while away the time, above it all.

Interaction with guests
We have a wonderful driver who can pick you up at the airport. He's bilingual and very helpful. His fee is $30 USD for a one way trip from the airport to the house. If you're interested, send me you flight itinerary and I'll check his availability. Otherwise you can get a safe taxi at the airport at approximately the same cost. During your check-in our administrator will welcome you to our place, show you around the house, give you the house keys, and answer any questions you might have. Our administrator is always available for emergencies and consultations regarding the city. She also gives an excellent tour of Guanajuato. If you are interested, you can book a tour directly with her upon arrival to the house.

About the neighborhood
Guanajuato is located in the most central part of Mexico. It is nestled in the Sierra Mountains but close to other major historic and cultural cities such as San Miguel de Allende, Queretaro, and Guadalajara.

The city of Guanajuato is 40 minutes away from the Leon, 1 hr away from San Miguel de Allende, and 2 hrs away from Dolores Hidalgo and Pozos.
Getting around
Shopping for Food & Spirits:

-The Mercado Hidalgo has the freshest fruits and vegetables it town and it’s only a 5-7 minute walk from the house on Ave Juarez. It's hard to miss. On the first floor you’ll find produce and the second floor is dedicated to arts & crafts from the region.

-La Comercial Mexicana is the biggest super market in Guanajuato.

-There's a convenience store inside Plaza San Fernando and a bigger one, an OXXO just steps from the plaza where you can purchase essentials, sodas, beer, wine, etc.

-There is a good bakery called La Purisma on Ave Juarez

How to get there
The BJX/Leon Airport is about 30 minutes away. You can hire our diver or take a safe taxi at the airport.

The bus station is 10 minutes away. You can easily fetch a taxi at bus station.

Our house is in the heart of downtown Guanajuato in one of the most beautiful Plazas in Guanajuato, Plaza San Fernando. The plaza is halfway between the Mercado Hidalgo and the Plaza de la Paz, along Avenida Juarez. The house is not on Ave. Juarez, but just 30 yards off this main street. Walk into the middle of the Plaza and as you face the large fountain, look up and you’ll see the five French doors from our living room.
