Take an exclusive, one-of-a-kind journey to San Miguel de Allende to discover why this colorful town and thriving center for art and culture is a favorite among world travelers.

Voted repeatedly by travel publications as “The Best City in the World”, San Miguel Allende is a one of Mexico’s greatest destinations and we invite you to travel and discover this UNESCO World Heritage City beyond the basics. While you spend time revealing why so many people have fallen in love with the city center by wandering the cobblestone streets, visiting artisan’s workshops and art galleries, and dining at renowned restaurants, you will also have time to explore the surrounding countryside: archaeological sites, boutique vineyards, and Magical Villages. Exclusive experiences that will make your San Miguel Allende visit one-of-a-kind include a private, intimate cooking class; a hot air balloon ride at sunrise over the city; invitation to Casa Dragones for a private showing and sampling of their tequilas; and a by-invitation only visit to view a lost collection of Frida Kahlo.
While most travelers are tucked away in boutique hotels or resorts, you will have your choice of private, luxury homes to return to for a unique glimpse of why so many foreigners have now made San Miguel Allende their permanent home.
