The City of Guanajuato is the Capital of the State of Guanajuato and home to the main Campus of the University of Guanajuato. It is one of the most important colonial towns in Latin America and a UNESCO declared World Heritage Zone.

This City is located about 350 km (220 miles) NW of Mexico City. Guanajuato (gwah-na-gwah-toe) dazzles the visitor with the charm of its relaxed atmosphere, its cobblestone streets, its picturesque plazas and underground streets. While remaining a small provincial city, Guanajuato boasts a great number of attractions, from beautiful colonial buildings to modern museums, from silver mines to an university.

Guanajuato’s altitude, 2000 meters (6000 feet), ensures that the climate is always pleasant. The rainy season is from June to September, which generally means a shower late in the afternoon. Weather in March is pleasant with light showers possible. Temperatures range from a low average of 11° C to a maximum average of 25° C.

Guanajuato is a famous international tourist destination, American, Continental, Mexicana, Aeromexico and Aerocalifornia have direct flights from major U.S. cities to the Leon – Guanajuato International Airport.

It is possible to arrive to Guanajuato from Mexico City by comfortable buses (4 1/2 hour trip)

We advise participants to make flight and hotel reservations in advance because  March 17 - 21, 2006 are national holidays in Mexico.
