San Miguel among world-class tourist destinations untouched by earthquakes

Following the deadly 7.1 earthquake three weeks ago, Mexico City is assessing the damage while preparing to rebuild.

Despite the intensity of the earthquake — the strongest in nearly a century — the airport reopened within hours of the event, and the Mexico Tourism board quickly issued a statement noting that the city would continue to welcome visitors.

“The Mexico Tourism Board, and the entire tourism industry, are focused on ensuring visitors in affected destinations receive any assistance necessary while continuing with their existing travel plans.” Mexico Tourism board (SECTUR) said in a statement.


But Mexico is a vast country, with a host of destinations where the earthquake was not even felt at all, including the state of Yucatan, where Mérida is one of the most underrated tourist destinations in Mexico featuring gastronomy, museums, culture and architecture.

Also the coast of Quintana Roo where Cancun, Playa del Carmen and The Riviera Maya are located, boast beautiful beaches, five-star hotels, all inclusive resorts and well-preserved Mayan ruins.

And of course, there is San Miguel de Allende, voted Best City in the World by Travel + Leisure readers, known for its Spanish colonial style architecture, more than 350 restaurants, and local artisans, a place that has something for every type of traveler.
