San Miguel de Allende is undoubtedly one of Mexico’s most beautiful colonial towns. Its rich history dates back over four-hundred and fifty years, and today, the town plays host to an incredible variety of celebrations, festivals, and events, as well as world class concerts and theatre productions. For those who enjoy fine dining, dancing, and shopping, San Miguel will surely be keeping you occupied with its colorful assortment of restaurants, night-life, boutiques, art galleries, pastry shops, and markets.
However, if your idea of a relaxing vacation includes copious amounts of adventure, the many adventure tours on offer will allow you to discover the wilder side of this peaceful place. There are several options to get the adrenaline flowing, along the semi-desertic paths of Guanajuato and its surroundings. Horseback riding through the many canyons, hills, lakes, rivers and cacti has become a quintessential San Miguel experience, sought after by many who visit the region.
Zip lining, in the volcanic canyon, includes seven zip lines and a suspension bridge which stretches over 3200 feet long, towering over 230 feet high, in the most spectacular setting available.
Perhaps the most unique way to see San Miguel, however, is from the air. Hot air balloon rides will leave you soaring through the skies, injecting a welcome dose of adrenaline for an unforgettable – and definitive – San Miguel experience.
