Not far from the city, you’ll find the massive nature preserve of Cañada de La Virgen. The highlight of a visit to this archaeological site is being able to explore the many pyramids.
There is a lot more to do here, including camping, horseback riding, and astronomy tours. While it’s possible to visit on your own, you’re better off signing up for a tour that includes lunch, all fees, and a guide.
This highly-rated experience is one you won’t want to miss and is one of the best day trips from San Miguel de Allende.
