San Miguel de Allende

Planning a trip to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico? Check out this trip report from my 2009 visit first.

La Parroquia, San Miguel de Allende















With everything that’s been on my plate, it’s taken forever to write up the final notes from my October trip to Colonial Mexico. For our last stop on our four-day tour through central Mexico highlands, we spent two days in San Miguel de Allende. I had actually joined the tour primarily so I could visit this town, well-known as an artist town/expat haven.

With cobblestone streets and little modern construction, San Miguel is extremely quaint, almost too much so (I liked Guanajuato, a lesser known university town about two hours way from SMA, better). Still, I can see why so many American Baby Boomers are choosing it for their retirement.

Read the San Miguel de Allende report here.

And read the previous installments, Guadalajara and Guanajuanto, here and here.
