Guanajuato, the capital of a state of the same name, is a charming colonial city that was built during the mining boom between the 16th and 18th centuries. Guanajuato was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988 and it is the cultural capital of the Bajio region. The city is rich with pretty plazas, winding cobblestone streets, Baroque architecture, museums, theatres and host to festivals all year round.

Some of the things you cannot miss in Guanajuato include the Mummy Museum, the International Cervantes Culture Festival in October, the Lady of Guanajuato Basilica, the Juarez Theater, and the city´s panoramic view of Guanajuato.

The city’s Convention Center has 17,120 square feet of meetings space, divisible into seven meeting rooms, the largest one can accommodate up to 1,200 guests. The Convention Center also has five business rooms; the largest can hold up to 30 persons, as well as an auditorium with 1,862 seats.

Guanajuato has a number of outstanding hotels, including the five-star Camino Real Guanajuato with 105 guestrooms and five indoor and outdoor event spaces with capacity for 550 persons. The Quinta Las Acacias is one of Guanajuato’s many beautiful, boutique hotels, perfect to host small meetings set in a colonial building with 17 stylish guestrooms and suites, and two meeting rooms that can accommodate 50 persons.
