Guanajuato Travel Guide

The Guanajuato Travel Guide is a free, online guide to everything you need to know, see, and do in Guanajuato, Mexico. The Guanajuato Travel Guide is provided for the guests of Guanajuato Vacation Rentals, vacation rental houses and apartments in the historic center of Guanajuato, Mexico, but is publically available to all visitors to this Colonial Gem City.

The Guanajuato Travel Guide is a new project that will take several months to complete, so please check back often to get the lastest updates. The Guanajuato Travel Guide is authored and copyrighted by the Guanajuato Travel Guide; you may freely link to it from other web sites, or print it for your personal use, but you may not copy any part of it to other web sites or publications of any type. Please respect the authors' work.

In the Table of Contents below, the links will be activated as work begins on each subject or chapter - some chapters may only have photos initially. For the moment, only the Survival Tips, Maps, and Recommendations links are active. Thanks for your patience.
