We are two healthy, experienced retired travelers we will be in the Guanajuato region from Dec. 15 to Dec. 27, 2016. Our hope is to respectfully experience the local people in their cultural elements (city and rural life, architecture, museums, festivals and performances--- and of course nature in all her glory!). Some easygoing hiking as well. One idea is to base ourselves in Leon for 6 days, then in Guanajuato city for another 6. It appears we can plan a number of easy day trips from those 2 bases (e.g.to Dolores Hidalgo and other sites) before moving on to San Miguel de Allende the last of December. We'd appreciate feedback on this plan as well as ideas on best cities with Advent and Navidad festivals. Muchas gracias por su ayuda!
