This is a beautiful park across from the theater. People stop and take a break on the park benches. The trees offer shade and are gorgeous. Vendors sell food, drinks and souvenirs.

Sit on a bench, buy a beverage or corn from a street vendor, enjoy the street activity or people strolling through the lovely, canopied garden. A perfect spot to spend some time in Guanajuato!

Loved this park (Jardin). We were there during Semana Santa and every night bandsand mariachi would play till the wee hours! The Jardin is surrounded by hotels and outdoor restaurants and pubs. Great location for people watching!

This postage size park offers a nice escape from the crowds in the busy streets. The fountains and hedges give it an exotic feel.

This is a lovely plaza with nice buildings all around and lots of activity. I have never been a fan of the sound of dueling mariachi bands - so I am not sure I would eat dinner on a patio around this square (but we...More

This is absolutely beautiful with the canopy of trees surrounding it with lots of benches to just sit and watch the people go by and enjoy the mariachi music being played. This is my favorite place to relax and just sit and watch. Always activity...More

A little island of green in the epicenter of the Historic District, this garden is a cool place to sit surrounded by the interlocking foliage of the beautiful trees. Apart from the cool temperature, it is perhaps a little too "cool" ringed by pricy restaurants,...More
