San Miguel is a special place that had come highly recommended to us time and time again. Since we often visit Mexico, everywhere from Cabo to Isla Mujeres, there are not a lot of places we haven’t explored. After visiting Mexico City last year, you can see my Mexico City Guide here, the colorful streets of San Miguel were next on the list. We had the most wonderful time here back in February and I am so excited to finally share my San Miguel Travel Guide with you today! To see what I wore during our stay you can view outfit posts here, here, here, and here. You can find everything from where to stay, what to do, and where to eat below – Enjoy!
Our favorite meal of the trip! It was a romantic setting, delicious dinner, and great atmosphere. I recommend the shaved brussel sprouts and kale salad to start with the red wine and tamari braised short rib for the main course. You won’t be disappointed! Make sure to book a table in advance as reservations do fill up quickly.
This is a great spot to sit down and enjoy lunch with a beautiful scenery and cozy feel. Along with the biggest bowl of guacamole ever and the ceviche tostadas, the jalapeno watermelon margarita is not to be missed.
This delicious Peruvian restaurant came highly recommended to us and was such a great one. If you are in the mood for a different style cuisine, maybe you need a break from Mexican food (never!), stop by for a great meal.
A great spot for breakfast with vegan and gluten free options, as well. There is also a beautiful shop next door that is definitely with popping into afterwards!
1826 Restaurant – The Rosewood San Miguel de Allende
If you are in the mood for brunch, make sure to stop by 1826 Restaurant. This elevated, upscale buffet offers an array of baked goods, hot mexican dishes, and all the yummy breakfast favorites!
Luna Rooftop Tapas Bar – The Rosewood San Miguel de Allende
This is a must! Sit down and enjoy a margarita, or your preferred drink, with 360 degree views of San Miguel. If you are not staying at The Rosewood, make sure to get there early as it fills up quick! I’d recommend timing it with sundown, as it is a great view to watch the beautiful sunsets over the city skyline.
This is another rooftop spot offering a 360 mixology bar! They also have live music and entertainment in an uber romantic setting. If you aren’t ready to leave the amazing view just yet, they also serve dinner.
La Aurora –
This is not to be missed! La Aurora is a great artist spot only five minutes from town. This old textile mill factory has been converted into a spot where local artists sell goods such as art, jewelry, furniture, and flowers. It is both indoors and outdoors with a little Parisian cafe in the middle when you are ready for a glass of wine!
Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel –
This beautiful church located in the center of town is hard to miss. The gorgeous pink pinnacles and neo-Gothic design serve as a focal point within the city. The square surrounding the church is filled with local vendors, restaurants, and shops. There is also a Starbucks if you need your coffee fix!
Escondido Place – Carretera San Miguel, Dolores Km 10 37894
While we did not have the time or appropriate weather to schedule a visit to escondido place, I would add it to your list of “to-do’s”. It is located almost 10 miles from town but offers indoor and outdoor thermal pools and a gorgeous view. Relax and take a break from the busy city streets and escape to this enchanting spot!
