A Guide to San Miguel De Allende, Mexico

San Miguel De Allende is as rich in culture as it is in color. Around every corner is a new and exciting thing to view. If it’s a different colored wall with greenery stretched across a doorway, or a little shop that sold handmade goods, San Miguel De Allende was exciting, eclectic and the least bit boring. It was so much fun exploring this small town only a few hours drive from Morelia. We stayed for two nights, and although only having one full day to explore, it did not disappoint. Gabriel started our day by exploring the markets, and we ended the day drinking margaritas, eating Chiles en Nogada, and taking in the center square of San Miguel De Allende.
