As cultures clash and trends transcend borders, a lot of major destinations are starting to resemble one another – but not San Miguel de Allende. A small town nestled in central Mexico, San Miguel de Allende is anchored in its authenticity. A place where Mexican tradition guides, but doesn’t restrict, the new.
The streets are an explosion of colorful colonial buildings, and its people are just as, if not more, vibrant. Home to countless artists and other creative types, San Miguel de Allende is alive with galleries, boutiques, restaurants and rooftop bars – which are perfect for the city’s “eternal spring” weather.
At the end of the day, though, it’s a collective sense of pride and love for Mexican culture and history that makes San Miguel de Allende truly a world of its own; a place where ancient rituals live side by side with modern artisanal producers, like Casa Dragones tequila.
It’s always in cities like this, where people know exactly who they are and where they come from, that we end up finding ourselves.
