Our neighborhood is a highly secured area with security patrols regularly monitoring the area several times daily. It is located in the exclusive area of the city where professionals professors, and doctors live. We are within a 15- 20 min. walk or a 5 - 15 minute bus ride to down town yet far enough away to not hear the irritating street noise, traffic, or loud noises . But the house is located at the edge of a park preserve; at the foot of the Majestic Mount Bufa, a natural preserve, so we're in a country setting, that makes you feel you're really " away from it all".
Guanajuato is known as a walking town, with so many things to see and do along the way....Most of our guest prefer walking once they've takes about 10-20 minutes to markets, restaurants, street vendors, and night clubs, depending on where you are going. We recommend you bring along some good walking shoes since that is the best mode of transportation here. There are inclines, hills and steps at basically every turn so be prepared to burn calories as you go from one place to the other. If you prefer to ride instead of walk we have an excellent bus transit system that runs every 10 minutes to all parts of the city. So for 5 pesos which is about $.25 USD you can virtually go anywhere in the city. And the taxi's are everywhere and they charge around 35-45 pesos which is around $2.00 USD. It's very easy to get around and enjoy the many attractions all over town, We can tell you where to eat, drink and be merry. What places are an absolute must to see. And many other suggestions for your enjoyment. There's no problem staying busy with so many things to do...........Upon your reservation confirmation, we will send a map to help you get oriented.
