San Miguel Allende

It was an easy transfer by bus to San Miguel Allende in the state of Guanajuato and we end up in a good hotel in a great location in Centro.

San Miguel Centro has lots of historic buildings but it lacks the energy of nearby Queretaro and Guanajuato. Many US and Canadian citizens have retired here and it's common to hear English spoken around town.

As usual we had some tasty food (pizza one night), visited museums, galleries, churches, and parks, and made one daytrip to the nearby town of Atotonilco.

Not only did our hotel in San Miguel, Casa de Huéspede, have a great owner and a great location, it also had this cool deco stairway.
