Safe, clean, colorful and friendly, San Miguel invites you to ''paint the town'' and discover its intriguing shops, great restaurants, fascinating galleries, and incredible views.
Enjoy wandering the streets and gorgeous courtyards, attending art exhibits and concerts, sitting at the central jardín and watching the birds flock into the linden trees, while children run around the bandstand, a Belgian draft horse pulls the ice cream wagon, and church bells peal all day long.
Explore the countryside hiking, biking or horseback riding on exciting excursions through canyons and plains. Visit the peaceful botanical gardens or the hot springs spas. Practice your favorite sport at one of the local clubs or gyms.
Dining around town is definitely part of the fun. Few towns of this size have such a wide selection of fine restaurants. From tasty Mexican home cooking to sophisticated gourmet cuisine and international specialties, many of them with colorful garden patios, local art, and live music. Also great bars and fun nightspots.
A wide variety of fine shops delight the visitor looking for the perfect buy. Great selection of art works, decorative items, leather goods, clothes and jewelry, and of course, Mexican handicrafts and furniture.
Fiestas are a way of life in San Miguel, where you will discover how life was meant to be lived- in celebration. You will taste it in the local cuisines, see it in the Mexican traditions and colorful flowers, hear it in the music, and experience it with the joy of its people, who live life to the fullest.
It's hard to imagine any town that offers so much for so little: Strikingly lovely in its architecture, placid and tranquil but always festive, with an air of spirituality everywhere you go, and a fantastic mix of cultures joining efforts towards preserving its history and tradition.
Thus, with an active foreign community and international cultural events throughout the year, San Miguel still remains an unspoiled Mexican provincial town: no neon, no billboards, no swarms of guides or vendors. All of this combines to make San Miguel de Allende one of Mexico's truly stimulating destinations. Even the most brief visit can be exciting, and longer stays are never dull.
