About San Miguel de Allende

Mexico is a huge country that offers its visitors an amazing amount of diversity. San Miguel is located in the geographical center of the country and is said to be built upon a bed of crystal quartz. Many people believe this legend aids in the “magical” quality so often associated with this town. San Miguel is a peaceful, safe environment, full of friendly people, sophistication and charm to spare. It is small, but far from sleepy. The streets are always full of visitors and locals in a lively and festive atmosphere. There is more than plenty to see and do on off hours during the retreat, and Linda is on-hand to answer any questions you might have, and offer suggestions for eating and other activities. The weather in late March is temperate: breezy and cool. Most days you can count on very cool mornings, warm to hot sunny afternoons, and slightly cooler evenings. Think layers and bring a light sweater. There is virtually no humidity. San Miguel is quite hilly in parts, and the streets are cobbled. You will most likely be doing a lot of walking (the best way to see the town!), so we suggest to bring good shoes. We are at 6000 feet and if you have not been in high altitudes, you may feel a bit tired the first day or two. Luckily, there are numerous cafes, parks and plazas for rest and refreshments all over town. There are also ample and inexpensive cabs available should you need a break from the walking. The cab drivers, incidentally are some of the best locals to practice your Spanish with!
