More About Guanajuato: Having traveled extensively in Mexico, Guanajuato is our favorite city, and high on our list of favorite cities worldwide. It is very European and exceptionally safe with lots of pedestrian only streets, parks, outdoor cafes, festivals, a major university, a symphony orchestra (admission $5 U.S.!), great art museums, night clubs, restaurants, monuments, etc. Ideally situated in the central highlands, Guanajuato is two hours from beautiful Spanish colonial cities of Queretaro or Zacatecas, and approximately four hours by bus to either Mexico City or Guadalajara. Guanajuato is built in a bowl in the mountains with steep streets and labyrinthine, colorful alleyways lacing the hill sides. GTO has exquisite architecture and a venerable history having been the richest city in Mexico for more than two centuries. Exploring the narrow, rambling alleys, or “callejones” as they are known, you will discover myriad hidden views across the city with it's classic Spanish colonial churches and brightly painted neighborhoods. One really unique aspect of GTO is that the city has been tunneled to direct traffic below ground leaving much of the historic downtown open to pedestrians. The residents of GTO are exceptionally friendly and most evenings are a buzz of people milling around the parks and cafes with mariachis and troubadours providing the soundtrack.
Unique attractions include the infamous Museo de las Momias (Mummy Museum), The Diego Rivera House, The Don Quixote Museum and numerous abandoned and working silver mines. Festivals and fiestas are a regular occurrence including the Day of Flowers, Semana Santa, and the acclaimed International Cervantino Arts Festival in October. GTO's climate is very consistent with warm, sunny days, and cool comfortable evenings. Occasionally breezy, cooler winter weather can drop daytime temperatures into the 60's, while summers range in the high 80's with frequent showers.
