What you'll do

We'll be heading out early morning on one of Guanajuato City's most celebrated hikes to La Bufa! This is a somewhat rigorous hike. It's not long, but there's a lot of vertical climb. The terrain is amazing with huge rock faces and pillars. From the top you get an amazing view of Guanajuato and the surrounding mountains, with a unique perspective that can only be seen from this vantage point. We will hang out on top and soak in the morning sunshine for a little while before hiking back down to the base.

  • Food
    Energy bars to keep you going

Hola! My name is Dustin. I'm originally from San Diego, CA but I lived in Guanajuato for over 2 years before. I just recently returned to Guanajuato City where I've been helping lead guided hikes to the surrounding mountains around Guanajuato. I love the landscape here, the culturally rich town, and the people too!

Little more background on me...
I've hosted guided tours out to La Huasteca Potosina, a beautiful region of Mexico. I also hosted a Surf Retreat in India for 4 years. I love outdoor sports such as hiking, surfing, and mountain biking. I love photography and have worked as a photographer for the last 5 years. I thought to start offering these guided tours because of my love for outdoor activities, interacting with and meeting new people, and getting to share the beautiful town of Guanajuato with others.

Sí, hablo español :)

Where you'll be

We'll be out in nature and in town. The mountain area is high desert. It's mostly dry, but greens up in June-Aug. The hiking terrain is amazing with huge rock faces and pillars. The view from the top of the mountain (La Bufa) gives a totally unique perspective on Guanajuato.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 3 reviews.

This was an amazing experience. We started at the bottom of the hill with a couple of options to go up, and we went the easier route, which was still challenging due to my acclimatization (I'm from sea level, San Diego). Dustin and I had conversations the whole way, and he went with my lackluster pace to the top of the mountain. La Bufa is incredible. The view allows one to see into downtown Guanajuato, but you really see the extent of the city from here, and the expanding areas, and Dustin's knowledge of the city is terrific, so all questions were answered completely. I do recommend that you wear climbing shoes, and probably take the "easy" route, at least at first. This was a great experience!

This was such a great hike experience! Amazing views and natural beauty. Dustin and his co-host Irving were awesome guides, very friendly and with positive vibes, both bilingual. A lot of knowledge and local insights about Guanajuato, surrounding towns, and Mexico in general. The hike itself is moderate-easy, but if I could do it on a sore ankle and out of shape then so can you! I highly recommend!

This was a great experience hiking La Bufa with Dustin. We had great views along the way, enjoyed a great workout, and made new friends. We also heard about the history of Guanajuato, some legends, and the best festivals in the city. This was a great experience for the beginning of our trip so we could fully enjoy the city!
