Charco del Ingenio: a 170-acre botanical garden in San Miguel

San Miguel de Allende is heralded for its works of created beauty, like its architecture and physical art.

But just outside the city is a prime example of natural beauty, as well. El Charco del Ingenio is a 170-acre botanical garden that lives within a nature preserve.

The garden was born in 1990 as a way to protect the unique natural environment, which has both scenic and historic value. Over the years, it has earned a certain number of accolades, as well. For example, the Dalai Lama designated it a Peace Zone in 2004.

Much more than just a place to visit to see wildlife, it is also a place for locals and tourists to hike, picnic, meditate, or simply reflect. The garden often hosts ceremonies, performances, and environmental education programs. It is located a mile from the center of the city and can be visited on foot or by taxi.

Address: Paloma S/N, Las Colonias, 37720 San Miguel de Allende, Gto.
