We visited San Miguel in August. It is colonial town very well preserved. The historic center is relatively big, full of narrow steep roads. Car is not advisable given that parking is prohibited in most of the central areas, but walking around the streets, visiting old churches and enjoying the typical restaurants is really nice. Very romantic. It has a... More

A word for visitors: Someone should advise them how totally ridiculous they look wandering around this rather conservative town in their silly resort clothes straight from Cabo and Puerto Vallarta. San Miguel is a five star destination with wonderful people and a bunch of odd looking freaks wandering around in shorts, tennis shoes, cameras slung over shoulders. Quite impossible to... More

Albert, an expert archeologist and naturalized to the region was extraordinarily knowledgeable and just as importantly, hilarious! He had such an engaging style and was such great story teller that he had my rapt attention for the entire 3-4 hours of the tour. It was fascinating - the history of the region and the pyramid and his narrative provided the... More

A true surviving 'colonial' town of old Mexico.... If you want true history, old historic architecture and very friendly people, this is a fantastic out of the way place to visit and enjoy the warm temperate climate, where the Sun seems to always shine.... No Beaches; no big city; just a beautiful place to visit and shop, and most of... More

My husband and I spent a week in this beautiful city. My sister is one of the "Gringos" Americans who live there year round. The city is beautiful, cobblestone streets, unique architecture, shops, churches, beautiful homes, restaurants and very friendly residents. The climate in June was wonderful, everything was green, 72 highs and 60 lows. The sun shines and the... More
