“Guanajuato offers visitors two World Heritage cities, Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende; along with five “Magical Towns”: Dolores Hidalgo, Yuriria, Jalpa de Cánovas, Salvatierra and Mineral de Pozos, and four archaeological sites, Plazuelas, Peralta, Cañada de la Virgen and Cóporo”, said the State Undersecretary of Tourism, Octavio Aguilar Mata, who led the presentation.

He also highlighted other travel segments that are growing in the state of Guanajuato, such as: convention and business tourism, shopping, religious tourism, ecotourism, adventure, culinary and weddings.

The Undersecretary said the State Tourism Ministry promotes different attractions, through exclusive representatives, producers and operators for each destination, with the aim of enhancing the resources and publicize as many places, products and services as possible, in high income markets such as Monterrey, Nuevo León.

Aguilar Mata stressed that Guanajuato has a new tourist offer that highlights the traditional products of the region, through the creation of routes and circuits; such as the Tequila, Wine, Mezcal, Nopal and Candy circuits.

There’s also the Picaso Route (Leather Shoes and Hats), and the Paradores Circuit, featuring José Alfredo Jiménez, Sangre de Cristo, Mineral de Pozos and Corralejo, where the rich history and vast culture of the state is displayed in a visually attractive way.
