Travellers Tips - Recommendations from our guests

We like to think that we know all the best tips to enjoy yourself in San Miguel de Allende but sometime we have to concede that our guests know best. Below is a collection of hints and tips from your fellow travelers.

Make sure you pick-up Atención, this is a great weekly English newspaper published by the Biblioteca Publica and it’s "What’s Going On" section is the bible for what to do in the city; from gallery openings to festivals and special events.
Catherine (Millburn, NJ)

For the best Churros and Mexican Hot Chocolate don’t miss San Augustine's, 21 San Francisco Street – it opens at 8 a.m. and is the best way to start the morning.
Felipe (Mexico City)

While away an afternoon with a good book in the courtyard of Belles Artes – the architecture is beautiful and there is a regular stream of students flowing in and out
Justin (Sante Fe, New Mexico)

The best time to visit the Fabrica Aurora is between noon and 3pm, it’s before Siesta and not too early so you tend to catch more of the artists in their studios and they are happy to discuss their work.
Mark (Dallas, TX)

My Kodak moment has to be the breakfast I had at Parque House. While I was there  local women gathered right across the street to visit while washing cloths at the spring fed lavage … it’s so authentic
Laurel (Honolulu, Hawaii)

The Cacti gardens and trails at the Jardin Botánico was one of my places, it was so quite and the high desert setting seems mystical – I plan to spend more time there on my next visit.
Sarah (Portland, OR)

The plaza, the plaza, the plaza... I always tell friends who are going to San Miguel de Allende to make the main plaza your hang-out – it’s constantly a buzz with locals and visitors and really captures the essence of the destination.
Martin (Houston, TX)

I always like to listen to live music when in San Miguel, some of my favorite haunts would include Tio Lucas for Jazz and Mama Mias for more traditional Mexican or Spanish music
Dean (New York, NY)

Do not miss the tasty taco, sold at the open-air market with a delicious and exotic cactus filling!
Maria, (Summit, NJ)
