Discover San Miguel de Allende

April 3–11, 2013

Join us for an unforgettable trip to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and explore the unique art, history, architecture, and culinary traditions of this charming colonial town. Spend eight days in this picturesque World Heritage site town nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of central Mexico. We will stay at beautiful Casa Chorro, a magnificent, fully staffed colonial home complete with luxurious décor and antique furnishings, lush terraced gardens, a private pool, and breathtaking views of the surrounding town and countryside.

Explore the winding cobblestone streets, charming pastel buildings, and stunning historic churches of San Miguel; admire the 17th- and 18th-century architecture of the city and tour elegant Spanish colonial homes; stroll through the bustling artisan’s market and visit private Mexican folk art collections, fabulous contemporary art galleries, and local artists’ studios. Marvel at Cañada de la Virgen pyramid, a pre-Columbian archaeological site dating back to 540 AD; take a scenic drive to Dolores Hidalgo to visit ceramic workshops and learn from the artisans how Mexican Talavera pottery is made; and enjoy a day exploring the museums of the lovely capital city, Guanajuato.
