You should plan to arrive in Guanajuato before 7:00 p.m. and you should plan to arrive at least three or four days before the classes begin to look for housing. Housing is generally based on a first come, first serve basis, so the sooner you arrive, the better chance you have at finding the housing of your choice. The town tends to close down at about 10:00 p.m. and the hotels lock their doors at about 11:00 p.m.. Frankly, when you first arrive, the town is confusing at night. It is easier to get settled if you arrive during the day.
If you plan to arrive in Guanajuato after 6:00 p.m., have an advanced, confirmed hotel reservation for the night.
Hotel prices will range from approximately $40-$50 per day for a single and $50-$60 per day for a double. These prices may vary due to inflation. You may want to call ahead to confirm availability.

There is also a tourist service at the airport that has a list of local hotels. If it is closed when you arrive ask a taxi to take you to a reasonably priced hotel.
The first thing to remember when you arrive is to slow down, be patient, and be courteous. You will be surprised how simple courtesy and a pleasant manner will improve your dealings with people in Mexico. "Thank you," (Gracias) and "please," (Por favor) are useful expressions to use often in Mexico.
The second thing you should do when you arrive is check in at the Summer Law Institute office at the Law School in order to determine the exact time and location of the mandatory orientation.
We urge you to arrive by Saturday, May 25th so that we can assist you to find permanent housing before classes begin. Then you can adjust to the lifestyle before classes begin.
The Institute will help students make arrangements for housing. We usually find student within 24 hours of arrival. If you plan to bring your children with you to the program, you should contact Robyn Cote, at (505) 277-6843 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org regarding suggestions for larger housing accommodations.
