A day in the San Miguel kitchen of Paco Cárdenas provides an indelible memory of a Mexican holiday. I've taken cooking classes around the world, and this was one of the best! We had an opportunity to visit San Miguel's Central Market, snacking as...

We used quad bikes to get to the place where San Miguel de Allende was founded. A small chapel built in the 15th century marks the spot. It is just one of the stops of a tour that took us through dirt roads, old bridges, ancient doorways and...

So clean, so calm, so beautiful. San Miguel may not have world known attractions but what it does have is worth experiencing.

Though less well known than in Antigua, Guatemala, the Easter celebrations (Semana Santa) in San Miguel De Allende are every bit as beautiful and intimate. Many of the cobblestone streets are covered with alfombras (colorful carpets of pine...

Rosewood Hotel in San Miguel de Allende is a beautiful (and pricey) place to stay right in the heart of San Miguel. But even if you're not a guest, it's well worth a visit to its restaurant, 1826, which is named after the year the town adopted the...

I was excited to learn of this pyramid site that was just recently opened to the public. Day trips leave from San Miguel and very inexpensive. It's quite a hike but the view of the country and the gorges are beautiful!
