... before heading into town again tonight. Hand washed all our dirty clothes which dried easily in the afternoon dry heat. We headed into town again for festivities but first visited a nearby carnival out of town and saw locals of all ages enjoying the evening at either the local park dancing (older couples), or one of the 2 carnivals , one for the young kids and the other for the daredevil teens.Carnivals are the same world over, neon signs, noise, shooting galleries, ...
... down there and not us. So, we walked from bar to bar trying to find them. It was an absolutely beautiful night, and I was loving the all the walking, taking in the atmosphere. We did eventuallly find some people she recognized, but she didn't really know them as much as some of the other people so she decided to hang out with us after all. So, we headed back to El Bar and found everyone on the first floor. A few dances later, we noticed ...
... and I really liked working there. It's really just in a corner of a plaza so it's kind of an open air cafe, but not really. It's hard to explain, but I have a feeling I'll be spending more Sundays there doing work. For dinner Rebeca served us carnitas (it's a dish made with pork) and cake left over from party (she had hid the cake for us in the oven so that no one would eat it!), and then I did another 2 hours of homework. One more week, and I'll be halfway ...
... a song for us since we hadn’t paid mariachi’s yet dad gave them money. Their song was about Guanajuato they playing was average but their singing nearly made my ears bleed, the funny thing was after they had finished they went and took a nap on the bench next to us.

... picture with us, then the guy made a joke about how much we were charging. I told him that we were charging a lot, but nothing came of it. Bummer. Anyway, so then that girl, satisfied with her picture with 2 complete strangers, walked away with the guy. Sasha and I made more comments about being super famous and then. . . just joking, that's it. The group, after at least 6 pictures (2 per instance), apparently had their fill of foreigners. How ...

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.
