San Miguel de Allende

In recent years, San Miguel de Allende has become one of the top destinations in Mexico. San Miguel is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a magnet for weekends and expats. Visitors enjoy walking the quaint cobbled streets, exploring the craft shops, hot springs, horses, hot air balloon rides, organic restaurants, and creative chefs working in all kinds of cuisines.

When you visit San Miguel, you can participate in any number of festivals that make this picturesque town a great destination all year round. You will find a city with a wild soundtrack, from the mariachi duel in the Garden to the busker in front of the Church of San Francisco who plays "Smells Like Teen Spirit" on his violin, while a group of wind instruments plays Mozart in the Angela Peralta Theater. Here you will find the best wines from Baja California's Valle de Guadalupe or the smallest batch of boutique mezcal from Oaxaca. There are croissants at Cumpanio identical to the lighter ones found in a Paris bakery, Casa Dragones tequilas in small batches as smooth as the best cognacs, and a farm-to-table move that is among the best in Mexico. On the horizon there is a concerted push to develop the local wine industry with new vineyards sprouting up throughout the surrounding countryside.

No more bulls run through the Garden, but the iconic Parish Church has lost none of its iconic stature. The homes of the leaders of the 1810 Revolution and the silver barons are now museums, banks, or boutiques. You walk out your door and there is a store that sells something you didn't know you wanted.

Although it continues to feel like a small city, recent investors from Monterrey and Mexico City have brought a new focus to the area along with an ambition to try harder. Now San Miguel is a full-fledged resort, a venue for weddings and family reunions, as popular with Mexicans as with foreigners, and the mix of various cultures is largely perfect. And there are still no traffic lights. T + L's San Miguel de Allende travel guide will help you get acquainted with this picturesque mountain town.



Just three blocks from the Parish and Main Garden, it becomes a privileged place for guests and the public, which can be easily accessed on foot from any hotel in the city center, making it very convenient and comfortable for everyone.
