San Miguel de Allende

A charming artist’s town in central Mexico, San Miguel de Allende is a UNESCO World Heritage City and an ultimate destination for rest and relaxation. Colonial Mexico comes alive in the streets of San Miguel de Allende, where cobblestone paths, lush gardens, and well-preserved mansions transport you to the 17th century. And where better to stay and experience the colonial heart of Mexico than the amazing Hacienda las Trancas? A 450 year-old hacienda, built on the original Camino Real, the Hacienda las Trancas is one of the gems of the area, where working stables, meals sourced from locally-grown ingredients, and a luxurious spa await.

    San Miguel is my grandmother’s favorite place in the whole world (she lives in Galveston Texas and has spent many vacations there), and I’ve always wanted to go! These photos make me want to go that much more! Gorgeous!

    What lovely photos! And, I can see you also love animals. San Miguel is such a great place to visit and to live. And the large, welcoming Expat community makes it the ideal locale to consider for retirement. There is never a dull moment in San Miguel, and one has to pace oneself here, or you’ll get tuckered out quick! The perfect climate, beautiful surroundings, and wonderful people .. that
