Additional Location Information
NOTE: Quinta Zaragoza Apartments [Guanajuato Rentals] are the only ex-pat owned and operated Vacation Rentals officially listed by the Guanajuato Secretaria de Turismo in its Registro Estatal de Turismo Directorio
You've no doubt seen the colorful and picturesque houses dotting the steep hills of our city. At Quinta Zaragoza you'll appreciate that your apartment will be located "at the bottom of the hill". No huffing and puffing your way home every evening. Please see our neighborhood in a slide show located at (website: hidden) We are in a basically flat area of Guanajuato - no steep callejones or countless steps to climb either going to or returning from the Centro Historico.
Other conveniences include being just a 10-minute walk to the newly reconstructed 260+ year old Parque Florencio Antillón which joins additional parkland around the la Presa reservoir where families congregate on weekends to enjoy the outdoor restaurants and paddle boats. In the morning, just steps from your apartment, you can buy freshly squeezed orange juice and freshly baked bread at the corner tienda and enjoy it on your private terrace as you listen to the birds sing.
If you like to hike, you can walk directly up the street to la Panoramica which circles the city and then hike the hills above, including to the cross at the top of la Bufa. From there, you'll have a breathtaking view of the city and the entire valley. You'll appreciate the close proximity of your apartment to the town during the day but the quiet solitude of being away from el centro as you drift off to sleep at night.
You'll enjoy fast WiFi in your apartment along with a desk or workspace for your convenience (though we wouldn't blame you for choosing to surf the Internet on your private balcony, terrace or garden instead). Kitchen/kitchenettes are fully equipped and are perfect for preparing your morning coffee and enjoying the fresh foods available at Guanajuato's markets. We have a self-service laundry on-site with new, large capacity US washer and dryer. Weekly [or more frequent] housekeeping services can be arranged.
From your apartment it is a leisurely, 15-20 minute stroll to -or- from town and along the way you'll be tempted by vendors offering fresh homemade ice cream and the vibrant Embajadoras market. Prefer to ride not walk? Then hop on one of the frequent buses that stop a minute from our main gate. All buses from la Presa head though el Centro Historico and the fare is only 5 pesos. Taxis are plentiful as well - the fare to most anywhere in town for only 35 pesos.
The intercity bus terminal [central camionera] is at the edge of town, a quick cab ride from your apartment and the place to begin side trips to surrounding sites - explore the arts and shopping in San Miguel de Allende, find the perfect pair or pairs shoes and other leather goods in León, take in the historic sites in nearby Dolores Hidalgo.
Quinta Zaragoza's owners, Bill and Meow, have have lived in Mexico for close to 19 years and have a great deal of knowledge about the area. You'll find out where to go, what to do, and what not to miss while you're here. And, if the timing of your stay is right, you'll enjoy Bill's monthly pizza night, where he fires up the giant oven in the central courtyard and makes what many consider the best pizzas in GTO for all the guests. Visitors from all over the world come to the cultural city of Guanajuato, Mexico, so you never know what kind of fascinating people you'll meet!
