San Jose Iturbide is a municipality where the visitor will find several options to enjoy a pleasant weekend trip or a long vacation in which you can get to know its wide geography, full of landscapes that defy the imagination.

San José Iturbide offers tourist routes for those who wish to venture into eco-tourism, exciting tours for the adventurous, spas with safe and fun facilities for families who want a traditional tour, crafts that reveal the creativity of its people, and a small and quiet town with all the necessary services for a relaxing weekend.

San José Iturbide occupies a strategic location in the state of Guanajuato, close to the municipalities of Tierra Blanca, Victoria, Doctor Mora, and San Luis de la Paz, and less than three hours by road from the main cities in the center of the country, such as Querétaro, San Luis Potosí, León, Celaya, and Pachuca, among others, located at kilometer 46 of the Querétaro-San Luis Potosí highway.

This dynamic city opens to the visitor the access doors to the northeast of the state. With a short stay in it, the visitor will be able to multiply his activities and choose between hiking, rappelling, and rock climbing. The nearby ruins of old mining towns will allow you to walk through authentic ghost towns, enjoy the fusion of contemporary music with pre-Hispanic instruments, or walk through dark so-called cavones with interesting stories about mining.

Of course, not to mention its importance as a first-class industrial center, which also makes it ideal for small meetings, both for business and weddings, family parties, and more.

To end the day, a small tour of its squares, cafés, bars, and portals is the ideal way to end the day before going to sleep.

By air or land, the visitor will advance on each stage of his journey accompanied by the pleasant aroma of the regional gastronomy, the quality and variety of its lodging services, beef or pork carnitas, corn gorditas, delicious ice pops, or a tasty variety of typical sweets.
