SAN MIGUEL de ALLENDE

 Daydreaming of a trip to San Miguel?

My packing recommendations for San Miguel= Camera!! You will stop for photos at every little nook and cranny. There is so much color, architecture, light and inspiration in this town. My second must=SHOES!! Pack according to the most comfortable shoes you own. I always pack an assortment of flowy dresses to wear with sneakers. Once you start seeing women twist their ankles on the cobblestones, you will rethink those sexy shoes you have on and go back to your casa for some sneakers...trust me. I am always stalking cute cafes and Centro does not disappoint with the cute & delicious. You'll find art galleries, boutiques and all kinds of beauty in non-descript courtyards and side streets. Hopefully you will witness  a magical wedding parade.. We were lucky to see a few with Mariachi bands and the infamous Mojiangas (giant 15ft tall puppets) a tradition in San Miguel. These moments were really a highlight of our stay, like a fairy tale. You may rethink your wedding plans and head to San Miguel!! 

A curated little guide and a link to our POP-UP

SLEEP~ It's really hard to decide where to stay in SMDA. There are magical villas on airbnb and lovely quaint hotels everywhere. I get FOMO so I usually stay in a couple of places. The last time I was there I checked out an airbnb and stayed at Casa No Name and Amparo. You will not be disappointed with a stay in either of these hotels. Just make sure you check the location of your home stay. Many are up in neighborhoods adjacent to Centro. This will mean walking up and down hills everyday unless you take a taxi. Like I said....sneakers!!
