Guanajuato, a Romantic Place to Retire

Guanajuato, the capital of the Guanajuato State is a historical and picturesque city full of agreeable little plazas, streets lined with stairs and houses of pastel-colored facades and balconies trimmed with iron work, and flower-filled window boxes. Certainly the type of city you would expect to be filled with tourists seeking to soak in some colonial culture and expats looking for a taste of Mexico’s famous laid back lifestyle. But for some reason Guanajuato has remained relatively obscure compared to nearby popular expat destinations like San Miguel de Allende and Ajijic.

Perhaps the city’s steep canyon walls and twisted up-and-down alleyways have discouraged visitors that prefer to get around by car, but if that doesn’t deter you from wanting to visit the crown jewel of Mexico’s colonial cities then you should put Guanajuato on your to-do list.
