San Miguel de Allende a piece of heaven

The travel blog “HOW NOT TO TRAVEL LIKE A BASIC BITCH” made by insatiable travelers whose primary purpose is to support those lusting for knowledge from every corner of the world, shares an extraordinary post on San Miguel de Allende, how to get there, where to stay, what to do, describing some of the main attractions, and concluding that this charming town is a little Europe nested safely in the countryscape of Mexico, a site not to be missed for just a $50 USD round-trip bus ticket from Mexico City!



As I sit down to write this, I realize that San Miguel is hard to put into words, I’d rather just show you.

I guess the first question to answer is: Why would I visit San Miguel de Allende? Short answer: cause it’s pretty. It’s a quiet city only 3 hours by bus from Mexico City where you can melt into a romantic landscape of art, greenery, and history.



How to get to San Miguel de Allende

I recommend doing this as a side trip from Mexico City since it’s so close. Refer to this Mexico City blog post for more information on entering and leaving there.

Once you’re in the airport of Mexico City, head to the kiosk servicing buses to Queretaro. The directions to find the kiosks vary depending on where you’re arriving from, but there is a concierge that you can ask and most people within the airport can direct you to it. It’s on the second floor. The kiosks are white and there will be people sitting behind desks. Above their heads are signs that show to which city the bus is heading. Go to the one that says Queretaro.



Once you get to the kiosk, buy your bus ticket from Primera Plus or ETN for $23-25 depending on the exchange rate. If you pre-buy on the website, I believe you get a discount but the buses were so cheap anyway, I didn’t care to go through the extra step.

The bus leaves every 15-45 minutes; the first bus runs at 6AM and the last bus runs at 10:30PM. During the week of Semana Santa, you might need to book in advance.
