  • If you want to go... you don't need to pay anybody, many locals will try to stop you to take you there with a fee. You can go there with a map, take a picture kissing over the red step. And enjoy!
  • It's an iconic location, but as it goes with many tourist spots the people in there who explain it will pester you to make a "voluntary donation". Nothing wrong with it, but just something to keep in mind.
  • Cute, but nothing extraordinary... if you wander around the city, stop by, but don't make no special plans for it... plenty of more interesting places to visit in guanajuato!
  • Great Romantic Place! I suggest doing the Callejonada its a tour of the city. They charge 100 pesos per person, you get a small souvenier. Plus they take you around Guanajuato walking and give you the story. At the end of our tour they took us to a small plaza next to the callejon del beso and they performed a skit on the story. It was a great experience. And all the money goes towars the University of Guanajuato students. Thd people performing are students them selfs. I suggest going with the guys wearing black and orange
  • This is one of the most visited places in Guanajuato. Nice place to propose, kiss your partner, wife or best friend.
