Need to get to Jerecuaro

by coura

Planning a trip to Guanajuato in the beginning of January. We have gotten ourselves as far as Leon. From there on, we are stuck... any advice on getting from Leon to Guanajuato and then from Guanajuato to Jerecuaro? Comfortable is not a requirement, just a wee bit of safety. :) Thanks

Re: Need to get to Jerecuaro

by Reynald

OK, so you plan to travel from Leon to Yerecuaro... just go to the bus station in Leon ... the "Flecha Amarilla" Bus line make the route from Leon to Jerecuaro. And the bus is propably a 2nd class make a lot of stops in other cities and towns.

There is a website www.larpman.com that has links for most forms of travel in Mexico including bus lines. Specifically he has links to most bus companies, 1st & 2nd class.

Travel Tips for Guanajuato

Take a visit to the University...

by Ronald_T

Take a visit to the University of Guanajuato or at least, going above through the many steps. It is even so hard then climbs a pyramid and you are exhausted that you prefer to stay a few minutes upstairs before going down again. Maybe a good idea for your fitness to do this every morning ;-)

Nice-to-do: Visit a Silver Mine

by gdilieto

Ever since the early years of the Spanish colonization, Guanajuato has been an area of silver mines. A valuable choice for a couple of hours getaway from the city is visiting one of the few mines, some dismissed other still in operation (though largely worked out), opened to tourists.

Of the four or five mines in the area, the top two worth mentioning are the Valenciana Mine (Mina de Valenciana) and the Rayas Mine (Mina Rayas), either one still in operation. The former has been for centuries the most profitable mine in the New World, providing at a certain time up to two third of all silver mined in Guanajuato, the latter is the oldest mine in the area, dating operation back to XVI century. I visited instead the dismissed El Nopal Mine (Mina El Nopal), a kind of "educational mine" which also provides guided tours. The visit takes no longer than half an hour, is limited to the first tranche of the mine, but I assure you that that is enough to realize how harsh working conditions for mine workers must have been in the centuries and likely still are.

All mines are out of town and you will need transportation to get there. You may hire a taxi and ask the driver to wait for your visit.

Guanajuato’s mummies you find...

by Ronald_T

Guanajuato’s mummies you find in the city’s Mummy Museum. Here, the mummified bodies of local people (a consequence of the peculiar mineral composition of the region’s soil) have been on display since 1870.

The first mummy to exhumed was that of a French doctor Remigio Leroy in 1865. Nowadays, the museum consists a various of exhibition halls, in which 119 mummified bodies are on display; 79 woman, 21 men and 19 children, one of which is the smallest mummy in the world…

saan miguel de allende

by hanspeter_W.

San Miguel de Allende is the seat of the municipality of Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico, a historic town founded in 1542 that has become an attractive tourist destination for wealthy Mexico City residents and has a large American and Canadian expatriate community composed primarily of retirees.

San Miguel de Allende is located in the eastern part of Guanajuato in Mexico's mountainous bajío region. The bajío (low place) is a relatively flat region about 2,000 m (7,000 ft) above sea level surrounded by mountains; it is a part of the Mexican altiplano. San Miguel serves as the administrative seat for the surrounding municipality of Allende, Guanajuato.

The municipality rests at 1,870 m (6,140 ft) above sea level. The municipality extends over an area of 1,537.19 km2 (593.51 sq mi). To the north it is bordered by the municipalities of San Luis de la Paz and Dolores Hidalgo. To the west it is also bordered by Dolores Hidalgo. To the south the municipality is bordered by Juventino Rosas, and Comonfort and to the southeast by Apaseo el Grande. To the northeast it is bordered by San José Iturbide. Finally, to the east it is bordered by Querétaro municipality in the state of Querétaro. The municipal seat is located 274 km (170 mi) from Mexico City and 97 km (60 mi) from the state capital at Guanajuato, Gto.

Universidad de Guanajuato

by VdV

Besides being the state capitol, and a cultural/historic center, Guanajuato is a university town. The downtown is full of students and academics who gather to converse, read or pass the time in the many cafes and restaurants. Students can be seen with their notebooks and sketch pads around the city, in the museums, etc. Turn the corner, and your likely to run into a group of students, one playing the guitar with the others singing along. This university setting gives the town a vibrant, energetic feel to it.

The main campus of the state university is a cluster of big, colorful modern structures visible on a hill during the approach into Guanajuato. The original university building, however, is located in the central downtown area, and now houses the university's administrative offices. The University building originates back to the arrival of the Jesuits and their founding of the College of the Holy Trinity in 1732. The state of Guanajuato took ownership of the building in 1828 and renamed it the State College, and by 1945 it gained its University status.

It is an impressive building to look at, and as you can see, makes for a great photo opportunity.
