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.
Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel
This city is well known for the church called Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel. The church was built in 17th-century, and it is surrounded by beautiful garden. It is known for its soaring pink spires & lofty, ornate sanctuary.
If you visit San Miguel, don’t forget to explore around downtown Guanajuato as well. You will love the beautiful colonial city with lots of colorful buildings.
Getting to San Miguel de Allende
San Miguel de Allende is about an hour and fifteen minutes from Leon Airport. Most major rental car companies are on the grounds of the airport. There are also taxis, group shuttles, and private shuttles available. Shuttle services and private drivers should be booked in advance.

I hope I inspire you to visit this beautiful city in Mexico. You won’t regret it!
