A glimpse of San Miguel de Allende

Canoe.com contributor Nelson Brancorecently published a series of recommendations for things to do and places to see in San Miguel de Allende, his message is somehow directed to future Ex-pats.

When most tourists think of Mexico, they envision white sand beaches, breathtaking sunsets, endless margaritas — and a possible wall being built between that country and the U.S.A.

But there’s more to Mexico than just enjoying a traditional resort getaway and engaging in its political discourse.

Despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s insistence that most Mexicans are desperate to flee their native land for an increasingly unstable America, this was the furthest thing from the minds of the earnest and peaceful people I met during a visit to San Miguel de Allende.

Juana, who works at the local Artisan Market, told me: “Look at our beautiful city — why would we want to leave here for America?”

Located about a three-hour drive from Mexico City (in the Bajio region of Guanajuato state), the mystical San Miguel may not have any beaches but it’s akin to the Hamptons to those who live in the country’s capital.

Several high-profile magazines, including Travel & Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler, have named the UNESCO World Heritage City as one of the world’s top tourist destinations. Its burgeoning food and wine scene have also made several international Top 10 lists, including Food and Travel Magazine.
