This is an easy way to get up to La Pipila and the view of the city. The cab operators also add tourist tips and some history for Spanish speakers.

Definitely do this if you're in Guanajuato. The short ride takes you to the pipila monument. Great city views and an unmisible "selfie "opportuniy. Also it's great fun to walk back down the stairs and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the town
