... displays the mummies. There was a tax that had to be paid every ten years and if it was not the bodies were removed from their crypt and stacked along the wall awaiting to be removed. The bodies were actually mummified because of the crypt seal and the clothes and skin are in tack. This museum is ranked by Sheila as the strangest in her entire life. I was fine until we found one of the bodies which had ...
... br> We studied in a café that I'd walked by a lot and always had wanted to go in, but hadn't yet. The girls I went with had been there a few times before and had made friends with the worker. She was really nice. There were two little kids running around. One was a little boy, probably about 2 years old, and he was running around, shooting us with whatever he had in his hand. He was so cute, and it added to the study session since we ...

When Saturday rolled around I decided that I just didn’t have the time to go the surprise party after all. I was extremely disappointed to have to make the decision, but I knew in the long run I’d be glad I made it. It was just too long of a time—14 hours from 11AM to 1AM—to lose. So, as a compromise, I hung out with ...
... for washing clothes, sitting, smoking, playing drums and one morning our neighbour sat up their puking into a bucket being shouted at by an unhappy mother/wife occasionally.
The first night here I did feel out of place, staying in a very tight Mexican community. We had wandered down into town to get food and drinks before it got dark, and we couldn’t find our way back and I felt very obvious. We got back and I did feel "Well if we are going to be robbed it might ...

Lunch was the same rice dish we had the other day, and then a thin slice of beef (not sure what to call it, it wasn't a steak, and a slab of beef just doesn't sound appetizing), salad (a pile of lettuce), and another side but I can't remember what. Then I had some sweet bread ...

Historical Traveler Reviews El Zopilote Mojado Guanajuato
This bed-and-breakfast appartment (three guest rooms) is located in the city centre of Guanajuato, but far away from the noise. The nice building is overlooking one of the beautiful small plazas in Guanajuato.
After much research and suggestions of Tripadvisor users we booked directly.
Great Place, Great Location
El Zopilote Mojado is a great place to stay in Guanjuato! The hotel is extremely clean, has a lovely terrace with views of Guanajuato, friendly staff, and big rooms with clean linens. The restaurant downstairs has great food for those weary of tradicional mexican food (sandwiches, salads, bruchetta) and great coffee, not to mention wireless internet access for guests. The owner speaks both English and Spanish. It is located just a short block away from the main plaza, so it is more quiet than the other hotels in the area. The price is just right too!
I have just returned from a glorious 10 days in guanajuato. Through tripadvisor, I found El Zopilote Mojado, a charming, warm and welcoming home away from home. I was traveling alone and needed a vacation and a retreat. I found both at raul and ana's delightful inn? bed and breakfast? It's difficult to describe because they satisfy needs you didn't even anticipate. A good book to read? A patio for early evening drinks and conversation? Views of the city that are glorious at all hours of the day? Delicious food in a charming cafe?
Lovely little place
We spent 3 nights in Guanajuato in March. We liked this place a lot- very clean, nice size rooms...
Unfortunately, Raul and his wife went on vacation the day after we arrived and the help does not speak English- so we didn't get all the help we would have liked and expected; however, I highly highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Guanajuato
Fantastic place to stay
We just got back from a trip to Guanajuato, and I wanted to recommend El Zopilote Mojado as a fantastic place to stay. The rooms were very nice, and the added bonus of having a terrace with a gorgeous view, a living room, and a kitchen made it an incredible deal. The breakfasts at the Cafe d'Art were only $4, but included a wonderful fruit smoothie, along with the full breakfast. The only thing that I could possibly complain about was the little man that went around yelling "Pan" over and over in the morning. But in retrospect, it added some humor and fun memories to the trip.
Great place to stay
We stayed here 3 nights in November 2005. It was fantastic. Just around the corner from the Jardin. Very comfortable peaceful and tasteful decor with great beds. Nice roof deck with view. The proprietors pay close attention to detail. The food, coffee and tea downstairs are great.
Loved the Zopilote
We stayed for four nights in February and loved this place. Everything was right, the location, the view, the furnishings and the coffee downstairs.
We just returned from a 5-day visit to Guanajuato, Mexico. We stayed at El Zopilote Mojado,a small charming inn located only a block from the Jardin de la Union, a brief walk through a scenic narrow stair-step alley way. The inn is owned and run by Sr. Raul Galarza,who made sure that everything ran smoothly from the airport shuttle arrangements to the lovely appointed room. There are two suites: one consists of a large bedroom with tons of closet space, a large private bath, and a private sitting room. The other consists of 2 bedrooms (also with great closet space), large bath & sitting room. Be sure to check out the gallery to see details of the rooms available. My husband and I had one suite and my sister the other, so we had the entire upstairs to ourselves. The inn is within walking distance to the museums, churches, and shopping, yet very quiet. A limited menu is available at the cafe, but it includes a large beer and wine selection. Interesting conversation with the proprietor and other guests comes with the territory, so be prepared to enjoy some good coffee, good conversation, and a charming location as you explore the beauty of Guanajuato from El Zopilote Mojado. Highly recommended.
