I had heard about San Miguel de Allende last year in depth and just knew it was a good fit for me. Have you ever felt that way about a place? I have a certain personality type that goes well with certain destinations, and I believe we all do. Now don’t get me wrong, my personality at times is also very well suited to a luxury beachfront resort! But in this season of life, I wanted to find a place that felt invigorating to my soul and stimulated a sense of creativity and peace.
I won’t sit here and tell you that there are endless things to do and see in San Miguel de Allende. There really isn’t. Your itinerary is not going to be stuffed to the brim with must-see attractions and can’t miss excursions. At the most, you might have a list of must-eat-at-restaurants.
Sure there is the Parroquia of San Miguel de Allende, the cathedral looking building I took about 3,982 pictures of at varying times of day. And maybe a few other check the box items. Certainly if you are into art you would love to spend time perusing the Fabrica la Aurora, that houses about 50 galleries.
But beyond that, you might just want to buy some stretchy pants and some good walking shoes and settle in!
Here is a look at some of the things that occupied my time (and my belly!) during the week I spent there.
Looking at the little snippet of my time there can hopefully give you an idea of what grabbed my attention and made me want to go there. It's a little difficult to put into words because I believe more than anything it's a feeling. And the feeling I wanted to experience I most certainly did and then some!
If you’ve been considering a trip to San Miguel de Allende, or this post sparked your interest, I would love to help it come to life. There are some amazing properties and boutique hotels that I highly recommend, and we can create a trip specifically suited to the type of experience you are after. This is also such an easy getaway for many folks that live in the U.S. For people like me traveling from Los Angeles, the flight into the nearest airport is only a few hours, and then you take a convenient shuttle, and BAM! Just like that you are transported to a magical place. Contact me to chat more about it!
