Guanajuato Travel Tips

Vibrant City Life in Guanajuato

The city of Guanajuato is the cultural capital of the Bajio region in Central Mexico. The many historic buildings, museums and preservation of culture have resulted in the city center being declared a World Heritage Site. There are few places in Mexico where you can see such fine examples of architecture that dates back to the Spanish colonial era. As you explore the city sights, you can learn about the legends and historical events that have become an intrinsic part of the city's culture. Guanajuato travel is exciting, and you'd do well to read up on the many attractions in the guide book beforehand to ensure that you don't miss out on experiencing the city to its fullest.

Guanajuato is a Year-Round Destination

Weather-wise Guanajuato has three main climates varying from temperate to semi-arid and semi-dry. The days are hot with temperatures seldom dropping below 17 degrees C (62 degrees F). This makes the destination ideal not only for experiencing the cultural sites but also for exploring its surroundings.

Have an Adventure at Guanajuato Vacation Rentals

There are several nature reserves near Guanajuato where you can enjoy the scenic beauty of the sierras on various hiking and mountain biking trails. The Valley de Santiago, located 54 miles from the city, has legendary mountain biking routes which take you to explore the many volcanic rock formations. The Zona Recreativa de las Palomas is located just 15 minutes from the city by car. The reserve is a haven for migratory birds from North America and a great attraction for bird-watchers. Here, you can take a tour in which you will learn about the birds as well as the different plants, trees and herbs of the region. For those looking for some thrills, you can go paragliding at Cerro del Cubilete which is 25 miles from Guanajuato or hot air ballooning in the nearby city of Leon.

Explore the Culture of Guanajuato

The city has an intricate network of paths and underground tunnels which connect throughout the city. Callejon del Beso is home to one of the city's most famous legends. Known as the alley of the kiss, the legend tells of two young lovers who were forbidden to be together; they would meet under darkness in the small alley to steal a kiss. A walk through the city center will take you to view the beautiful architecture of the Basilica Señora de Guanajuato, the Alhondiga de Granaditas, the Templo de San Diego, and the Monumento al Pipila. During your meanderings, you can stop in at the markets such as the Baratillo. Here, you will find ceramics and jewelry crafted by hand in a tradition that has been handed down through the generations. Other crafts include hand-blown glass, wood sculptures, brass utensils and Mexican toys such as yo-yos and spinning tops. It's interesting to watch the artisans at work and spend time selecting a bowl or earthen pot to take home as a souvenir.
