Tips / Destination

The mountain town of Guanajuato has plenty of bars thanks to a large student population. Here are some of the best venues to look for.

In the center of town, head to El Incendio for an atmospheric drink. This dark little hole has been open for centuries, and it’s still popular today for its bargain prices.

Just across the road is the Choperia, a cavernous space that sells draught beer. There are plenty of screens, making it a great place to watch sports.

A little further up the road is Golem, an old house turned into a bar. With multiple different spaces and a roof terrace it can be easy to lose your group, but it’s a fun place where the drinks are cheap.

Later on the place to be seen is Why Not?, with its lounge areas and dancefloors. The party often continues until 5 a.m. here, so don’t be surprised if you lose track of time and stumble out as it’s getting light.

Guanajuato is also home to a strong LGBTQ community, which flocks to Whoopees. It’s a trendy spot known for its friendly atmosphere.

You will also find cantinas and bars as you wander around town, but the places listed here are among the best.

Adventures on Pitcairn Island

Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific. At only 15 square miles and a population of 50, it doesn’t exactly come to mind as an adventurous tourist destination. However, this tiny island is hiding some incredible opportunities.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Riad Le Bel Oranger, Marrakesh, Morocco

In the loud, busy and often overwhelming medina of Marrakesh, it can be difficult to find a tiny sliver of solace in which to rest after spending hours negotiating for the best market prices. But one riad truly exemplifies the characteristic of “tucked away,” as it’s located a few connected alleyways from the noise and congestion.
