San Miguel de Allende
Mexico | April 22-26, 2019
San Miguel de Allende, the colorful colonial town turned art mecca and gastronomic nirvana, was named “The Best City in the World 2017” by Travel + Leisure. And you’re about to find out why.
More details are available in our itinerary.
Known for its distinctive architecture, rich culture, and culinary masterworks, San Miguel de Allende is a city for all senses.
Have a taste for phenomenal food? The state of Guanajuato, where San Miguel is located, is the only state in the Mexico with its own gastronomic public policy. With over 200 food events happening in the last five years and a booming wine renaissance, this region has fully embraced its two centuries of culinary traditions.
Sample all the mole, gorditas, tequila, and stuffed chilis you’d like at over 350 restaurants and markets, then walk them off within the 68 blocks of historic city center.
Our hotel, Hacienda Las Amantes, is a world heritage site with incredible views and is located just blocks from the city center. This intimate, six-room hotel — formerly a convent — is nestled among SMA’s bright, Spanish colonial architecture, and perfectly matches the city’s seductive, under-the-radar vibe.
At the hotel, enjoy chef Marcela’s local, organic cuisine and the peace the emanates from the lodging’s walls — owner Gabriela Enriquez is the youngest hotelier in the city as well as a former shaman, giving the location its distinct energy and serenity.
San Miguel de Allende is the perfect spring getaway for travelers with an eye for beauty and an ear for the sweet sound of a beckoning adventure. Feast your eyes on this incredible itinerary!
