How to Spend 3 Days in San Miguel de Allende

How to Spend 3 Days in San Miguel de Allende

Three days in San Miguel de Allende gives you the chance to see the best of the city—from food to architecture—while also allowing plenty of time to explore the surrounding areas. From archaeological sites and horseback riding to street-food tours, here’s how to spend three days in San Miguel de Allende.  

 

Day 1: Stick to San Miguel

Mornings are best enjoyed in the central plaza, which is dominated by the towering pink spires of the Parish of St. Michael the Archangel (Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel). Snap photos both inside and out, before retiring to one of San Miguel’s many cafés for a cup of Mexican coffee. Join a guided walking tour to stroll the colorful streets, especially in the Guadalupe neighborhood, home to much of San Miguel’s street art, or take to the craft stores and art galleries for some souvenir shopping. In the evening, wine and dine at one of San Miguel’s many excellent restaurants, or if it’s Day of the Dead, take a guided tour of the evening’s festivities.

 

Day 2: Sample Local Cuisine

Devote your second day to the cuisine of San Miguel de Allende. Start your day at one of the city’s top breakfast or brunch restaurants, then continue your culinary exploration with a comprehensive street-food tour. Some focus on specific items, such as tacos or tequila, while others give an overview of the city’s street-food offerings; either way, your local guide’s expertise will help you find plenty of spots you might not have discovered independently. If you prefer wine to tequila, dedicate your afternoon to a guided tour of San Miguel’s boutique vineyards instead. Most tours include round-trip transfers, so sample to your heart’s content.

 

Day 3: Get Back to Nature

On your final day in San Miguel de Allende, choose a full-day excursion tailored to your tastes. History buffs can choose a guided tour to either the Cañada de la Virgen archaeological site or the abandoned mines of Mineral de Pozos. Outdoorsy visitors may opt to combine horseback riding with a hot-spring experience or ranch visit, which includes the chance to milk cows and make cheese. Alternatively, head to nearby Guanajuato City to wander the city’s subterranean tunnels, tuck into typical street foods, and explore top sights such as the El Pípila monument and Juarez Theatre.
