San Miguel de Allende is world famous for its temperate climate, colonial architecture and Mexican flare, located in the mountains of central Mexico only 3 hours northwest of Mexico City. San Miguel is also a mecca for the arts, numerous galleries and vibrant musical and theatrical performances.
Attracted by this diverse atmosphere, there's a sizable foreign community, lending a cosmopolitan flavor to its activities:
Several airlines offer flights to nearby airports convenient to San Miguel, including Guanajuato/Leon (BJX), Queretaro (QRO) and Mexico City (MEX). Private car transportation or shuttle service can be arranged.
The charming colonial town of San Miguel de Allende is consistently recognized as one of the world’s great cities. In 2017, Travel + Leisure readers named it #1 on the list of the world’s best cities and, in 2013, Conde Nast Traveler readers named San Miguel the #1 travel destination in the world.

“San Miguel is one of the most authentic, creative and cost-effective destinations we’ve visited,”
says a T+L reader of the colonial city, a part of which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. “
Over the years we’ve discovered more great restaurants and activities, but the town still
maintains its Mexican heritage, culture and charm.”
