Although Guanajuato is​ in general a very safe and lively town and has a friendly, spirited nightlife, as in any city, there are some precautions that it is always advisable to take when moving around in a place you don’t know.

  • Be aware of your surroundings and take precautions accordingly
  • Avoid deserted alleyways, even during the hours of daylight
  • Avoid walking alone at night
  • Use only properly identified taxis, or request them over the phone
