... nice seven dollar haircut (which included tip).
I left half way through Thomas' haircut to meet Stacy. With a minivan full of "loot", we drove out to Las Ventanas golf club on the outskirts of town. It is a huge development with many luxury homes on the golf course and an enormous stone gate. Three armed guards in bullet-proof vests were at the gate.. thankfully, we had a pass because neither Stacy nor I speak very good Spanish. This ...
... they were for sale, and she let us know that they were to help fend off the rain to her store. We walked around and were unsuccessful in finding one.
The rain was not a problem so we explored areas south of the Jardin that were on Sheila's list. We did stop at a dress shop that had some scarves that Sheila found familiar and we walked in and she talked with the staff. She found a pair of slacks that were very nice and tried them ...
... flights, we were to contact Donna, back in Guanajuato, and she was going to get her mom to come pick us up so we'd have a place to spend the night. It's good to have friends all over the country!
Well, so ends my second, and last, full summer in Guanajuato. Next summer will just be three weeks of classes, and though it's an insanely intense program, we do somehow find time to enjoy our time there at least a little, and I'm kinda sad that I only have three weeks left.
Participants worked alongside local artists as well as visiting Latin American artists.

Historical Traveler Reviews Quinta Las Acacias Guanajuato
My husband and I just spent an enchanting 5 day's in Guananuato, Mexico. The town in itself is lovely, fantastic architecture with Spanish and Moorish influence, museums, silver and gold mines, and lots and lots of history. We stayed at Quinta las Acacias, a small luxury hotel. The hotel was an excellent choice and the service was incredible, very personal. Our room exceeded our expectations and our own private deck and pool was magnificent. The hotel served an excellent made to order breakfast each morning. Before we arrived, Anna provided us with a day to day itinerary for the week. We walked into town (an easy 10-15 min walk) and had no problems following her itinerary. We did manage to spend at least one day relaxing at our own private deck and pool. The staff was also helpful in all matters, arranging tours, securing dinner reservations and scheduling massages.
Beautiful and quiet
My husband and I stayed at Quinta las Acacias for four nights. It is beautifully decorated and quiet (about a 25 minute walk to town). The staff is superb - helpful and attentive. The restaurant serves interesting breakfast entrees and the dinners are wonderful. Our room (at the top) was large and comfortable. We'd go back in a minute - it's a perfect compliment to the charming town of Guanajuato.
Hotel and Staff Go Out of Their Way To Make Your Stay Perfect
My husband and I just got back from San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato yesterday. We only stayed in Guanajuato the last two days and should have really stayed much longer. The city is a wonder but the people are the true hidden treasures. Our stay at this wonderful hotel was very pleasant and the food and staff serviced all our needs above and beyond what we had expected. There will be no apprehension in going back to this location only anticipation. Thank you to Ana the Manger and the wonderful staff.
Quinta Las Acacias
Everything was perfect. A great discovery.
Great Small Hotel
Lovely small hotel with very personable staff. good food too. away from what has become a very busy downtown. I'd go back!
Guanajuato- Quinta Acacias. We stayed here from July 2nd to July 4th, 2005. Great location,. very very nice professional good staff. Beautiful building and the little restaurant they have serves excellent food. The neighborhood was also a wonderful area to stay in Guantanamo. It is not in the center , it is in an area called Presa. An upscale area, beautiful old mansions line the street and at the end of the street there is a park/water reservoir and you have a view of this beautiful park from the roof garden of the hotel. There is a small pool in the hotel which is good enough for dipping in and cooling down. The staff is lovely, very professional and accoomedating. I will stay at this hotel again next time I go there. The building is a colonial old building and the rooms are decorated in different styles, if you want a Mexican style ask for the Mexican suites they have, the rest of the rooms are old Europe and they are also lovely. The room on the 1st floor next to the kitchen and dining room which I think it is one of their largest suites although is lovely, large and very comfortable it can be noisy because of where it is. Over all wonderful stay and a great experience.
I stayed two nights at Quinta Las Acacias Boutique Hotel in Guanajuato and I spent a great time !!!!!!
The quiet location of Quinta Las Acacias, overlooking the lake created by the city's main dam at the edge of the city, is still on the bus route, and very convenient to everything in Guanajuato via the very cheap, frequent buses. We found it very pleasant to walk into the center of town every day, then use the bus to return in the evening, since it is all uphill. The rooftop garden and jacuzzi give a fabulous view of the mountains which surround the city, and the nine rooms are each decorated in a "theme", and all are unique. We stayed in "La Abuela", which has two balconies and is furnished with beautiful antique French furniture. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, even to the extent of rising an hour and a half earlier than the breakfast hour in order to prepare something for us before our 6:00 AM departure time. It is not inexpensive, but worth the price. The breakfast itself is almost worth the price of the visit!
The hotel is not in the center of town but a five minute taxi ride.
Nice side of town and quite. The 3 suites on the back of the property are much nicer than the original ones on the main structure. The only down side of this hotel is that most of the rooms have no heat and it was cold in the evenings. The food was not the best but eatable. The staff was very friendly.
Outstanding Small Hotel
This is truly an outstanding property. It's considered to be in a suburb of Guanajuato, and it is a bit of a walk into the center of town, but it's not unreasonably far, and the neighborhood is lovely.
Five of the suites are in the original, late 19th century house, and reflect the European taste popular at that time. They're beautifully decorated, but we opted for La Guelaguetza, one of the three Mexican suites built on terraces above the house. The decor is fantastic, from the carved furnishings and brightly painted walls to the fresh flowers and the hand-blown goblets in place of ordinary hotel glasses.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and our stay was truly delightful.
