Forget beach resorts, try San Miguel de Allende for soulful reinvention

According to National Post, 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?”
