When reserving your hotel:

You must reserve as soon as possible. Guanajuato city is a touristic city. Hotels are full very soon in summer, which is all along the year in Guanajuato.

When reserve your room, state that you are participating in the MINERvA meeting of Universidad de Guanajuato, July 9-15 2017, to have the special prices. These are approximated, since I have translated from MX$, and include taxes, but not tips.


The meeting will be at Universidad de Guanajuato, Guanajuato City downtown, main building and at three rooms close to it. Extension Cultural.
