my husband and I will be in SMA next weekend when he has a B I G Birthday and I wondered if anyone has recently experienced a truly special spot there?? We like all kinds of food; do NOT need it to be Mexican fare. (we've not been there for a few yrs and just usually go to less expensive places)
My daughter will be visiting us when we are in SMA. Does anyone have suggestions where she can go hiking and/or climbing? Thanks

We are going to San Miguel the end of October and staying in the San Antonio area. We used to love going to Cha Cha Cha on previous visits but understand it is now closed. Does anyone know if that is true? Is there another restaurant in its place now? We would love some other suggestions for good restaurants in that neighborhood.
Hi! I am planning a trip where I will stay in a hostel in Guanajuato and will have 9 days of visiting time. Since I am making Guanajuato my home base, I would like to visit other cities near by as day trips. I know nothing about these places, but realize, at least that some are smaller than others and of course,and perhaps several could be visited in one day, while others would take several days. Nonetheless, I am on a limited budget and so must return to Guanajuato to sleep. Also, I do not have a car, so would likely take a bus. With that in mind, What are your recommendations? My thought was the following: Guadalajara ( I know, more than one day, but possibly city center highlights?), Queretaro, Morelia/ Patzuaro, Zacatecas. San Luis Potosi, Aquaclaientes,San Miguel de Allende. I have read that Dolores Hidalgo is very important historically, but architecturally, not of that much interest, but I am not sure. I assume I will spend 3 days or so seeing Guanajuato as well and can, of course see it in small chunks of time each day as well. I have a lot of energy and don't mind long days, but am I just crazy to try to see all of this in my short time? I really appreciate your help. Thank you for any suggestions.
My cousin, Barbara Faith Corrovibuis, lived with her husband Alfonso in San Miguel and died in 1996. Her husband died a year later. Where could I find information where they are buried in San Migue? I will be visiting in October.
I will be traveling to San Miguel de Allende in August. I'm flying in to Mexico City and taking the bus. I've already learned a lot about this process by reading the answers to others' postings. I still have a couple of questions: (1) I will arrive in Queretaro between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. Are there still buses running at that hour to SMA? (2) I will be returning to Mexico City via bus on a Sunday. Do buses run as frequently on Sundays as they do on weekdays?
Hi Folks-- Will be going to SMA end of April, 2010 and finding we'll be there for Temazacal being held on April 28th. Cost is25USD/per person. Has anyone gone to this? Seems pricey for a dip in a hot springs bath with herbs under the stars, or is there more to it? Thanks!
We are traveling to San Miguel in January. We want to visit with friends in Comonfort and will need a vehicle for 3 or 4 days. Would it be best to use one of the shuttle services from Leon airport and rent a vehicle once we get to San Miguel?

Hello VTers. I'm headed to San Miguel for 3 nights in a few weeks with my boyfriend and his parents. We already have a place to stay, but are looking for things to do. I've never been, but I hear there's lots of shopping and good restaurants. I was hoping someone might know of an english cooking class? And cost? Anything else we HAVE to see or do? Thanks, as always!
My sister and I would like to travel to SM June 2008 with our kids ages 11,10,9 and 5. Is there enough for kids to do in SM? Any ideas for good art and Spanish classes/camps for kids? Also, would like to rent a nice house, centrally located with pool and help? Thanks- Jennifer
I will be driving down to San Miguel de Allende in a couple months. I have been dismayed by the very limited list of articles a person entering with an FMT may bring with them into Mexico! I will be down there for 3-6 months and would like to bring a few pieces of electronic equipment, more than 5 CDs(!), etc. How can I get advanced approval for these items so I don't run into customs trouble at the border? Thanks!
I've been asked by friends how far/long to get to the beach/ocean, from San Miguel de Allende. Any ideas? Thanks! --Gabriel
Greetings, We'll be visiting SMA around Thanksgiving. I know the best seems to be to fly into Leon or Queretaro and the drives are 1 1/2 and 1 hours respectively. I do want to avoid Mexico City but see some good fare to Guadalajara. Does anyone know how far that is and how long it would take from there to SMA? Cheers, Douglas

We - a couple who live in Todos Santos, BCS - plan to travel for the month of September on the mainland. We would like to spend a week in San Miguel and are looking for a small self-contained casita to rent. We do not need a huge kitchen - just enough space and necessities to prepare breakfast and lunch. We have a guest casita in Todos Santos and would consider a trade - the trade to be used at a time convenient to both parties. Our casita can be seen at www.casasofiabaja.com We are also willing to pay rent - maybe650 a week? We will be traveling by bus and would like central accommodations. Please let us know if you have any suggestions.
This is probably a stupid question, but would there happen to be a public swimming pool in San Miguel de Allende ? I realize it´s a small place, but just in case....
Has anyone made the trip from PV to SMA? If so, please tell me what the best route would be. Gracias!
Hi, I'm a senior at Allegheny College, a small school near Pittsburgh, PA,and am writing a thesis about the role of American retirees in Mexico. I would like to speak to a few individuals about what attracted them to Mexico, how they perceive Americans' integration in San Miguel, and how visible the foreign presence is in the community. I am familiar with the area, having spent a semester in Queretaro and am fluent in Spanish. If you or someone you know would be willing to give me feedback I would greatly appreciate it!
