LODGING & NEIGHBORHOODS
Many of our activities will take place near the Centro (between Mercado Hidalgo and Jardin Embajadores). It is cheap and simple to navigate Guanajuato by bus and taxi, so no one neighborhood is best. One host is staying in San Javier area, 2km north of the Centro, 25-35 minute walk depending on if you're going up or downhill. The other hosts are staying closer to the Centro, one near Mercado Hidalgo and the other not far from the funicular.
