  • Guanajuato is lovely for walking - compact many pedestrian-friendly alleys (callejones) and streets. But eventually one needs to take a load off. The Jardin de la Union is a lovely park with a garden ...  more »
  • The union garden is literally the heart of Guanajuato. A small garden in the shape of a slice of cheese that some hotels and restaurants, is a must-see place for eat, drink a beer and listen to mariachi. It is the starting point for everything else.

  • Lovely square for sitting around on the benches and watching the world go by. There are artists plying their trade and also a dance class of Latin movements; i. e. Rumba whilst I was there.

  • Lovely Garden. You have the Teatro Juárez and the Restaurants are great. You can also find the estudiantil for the famous GTO callejoneadas.
  • Went to a birthday party and the garden is clean and green. It's really just a courtyard but very nice with a covered banquet hall/dance floor.
  • Plaza bonita pero evítenla durante el Cervantino. Atascado.
  • Pasaras por aqui si estas en GTO
  • Very nice area always good restaurants and bars
