Fairytale City in Mexico

When you think about Mexico, Cancun, Yucatan, Tulum, and Mexico City are easily on your top destinations to visit. But today I want to introduce a magical city called San Miguel de Allende.  It’s easy to swoon over the 500-year-old colonial city’s narrow walkways, baroque architecture and artisan shops selling plenty of crafts, jewelry and handmade accessories. This city is truly out of a fairytale.
