The magic of San Miguel de Allende
If there’s a trendy place in Mexico and all over the world, that’s San Miguel de Allende, and there is a very good reason for that, well, actually several reasons. Let’s go through some of them because we’re sure that you’ll want to pack your suitcase when you finish reading this.
San Miguel is a very comfortable place to get to, it is centrally located in the country and it has a very easy access by car or even by plane, having the Querétaro airport only 41 miles away and making it easier for tourists from other countries or the northern Mexican states to visit.
Something incredible about San Miguel de Allende is that it has everything a sybarite from the big city can ask for but in a small town’s atmosphere that makes you feel surrounded by magic and calm.
A simple walk through its streets can give you the sensation of having time-travelled to a time where beauty prevailed in its buildings and the life was simpler but way more relaxed. Its famous San Miguel Arcángel parish is an already iconic spot in the city that has nothing to envy the most stunning samples of neo gothic art from European towns.
If you are a nature lover, San Miguel has a lot to offer on this matter. One of the most interesting activities is visiting the different zones of hot springs around the city, such as La Gruta, Escondido Place or The Mayan Baths where you’ll be able to enjoy extraordinary sanctuaries of mineral water and underground pools that will make your mind and body younger.
Via Orgánica is another great alternative for those longing to enjoy nature and have the conscience of taking care of it. This is a space where eco tourism is promoted and they offer rural horseback riding, educational workshops and a delicious organic cuisine.
We know that if you’re interested in all of this it’s because you’re someone who enjoys the company of animals and pets. It’s why we’d like to recommend you the perfect hotel for this kind of traveller: Canela Fina is a series of lofts and little houses that not only have an avant-garde design, but they’re also pet friendly.

Its location can’t be topped, right in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, which gives you that ancient feeling that the visitors of this town love, but its modern yet cozy design in the interior makes a contrast that fascinates the senses.
It’s time to leave the stress behind and get deep into the little town’s life, the good life. Good food, good hotels and good people are waiting for you in one of the most valued cities for travellers in the world.
