If you have seen my Instagram post lately, you know that I just recently returned from a trip to San Miguel de Allende located in Guanajuato, Mexico! San Miguel de Allende is located in South Central Mexico, just a two-hours fifteen-minute flight from Dallas to Leon. After landing in Leon, you take a car service and drive about an hour and a half to the mountainous town of San Miguel de Allende. San Miguel de Allende is one of the hidden gems of Mexico. This charming town is made up of colorful stucco buildings and lined with cobblestone roads.
Our first day in the City, my husband and I set out to explore the city. We stayed in town a boutique hotel called Casa 1810 located just one block away from the town square and the infamous church, Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel.
The city is known for having several rooftop bars and restaurants that are all centered around the town square and the beautiful church.
One place you must go to (if you are not staying there) is the rooftop bar at the Rosewood Hotel. This rooftop bar and restaurant offer’s the most breathtaking views of the city. The hotel is located just a ten-minute drive on the outskirts of town so you get a fabulous panoramic view of the city.
The reason for our trip to San Miguel de Allende was to attend one of my girlfriend’s wedding. On Friday evening, we met in the cities town square in front of the church, Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel where we were greeted by these oversized custom-made puppets that were meant to look like the bride and groom, haha! We were serenaded by the mariachi band as we all gathered around to follow the bride and groom as they march the streets. It was such an amazing experience, the entire town comes to a stop to participate in the parade!
The wedding reception was held at a private villa called Casa Hyder and it was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I felt like a princess twirling around on the beautiful rooftop patios.
I highly recommend you experience San Miguel de Allende at least once in your life. It truly is one of the most charming, traditional Mexican towns!
