Guanajuato neighborhoods

Marfil & La Presa

Guanajuato City doesn’t have a huge expat population, but two areas popular with expats are the posh and pretty neighborhood La Presa and the suburb of Marfil.

La Presa is within walking distance to the center of the city and is home to some of the city’s nicest restaurants (my favorites are Amaxti and La Victoriana).

Marfil is further out—you’ll need a car or be prepared to use buses or taxis to get to Centro. Homes can run bigger out here, and some are pricier too.
