Guanajuato & San Miguel de Allende

September 2014. Road trip from Monterrey to Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende.

It was a long drive, but well worth it. We spent 4 nights in Guanajuato and travelled to San Miguel for a day trip. The pictures below will show you why everyone raves about these two colorful cities!


We stayed at a lovely place called Casa Zunga B&B which we would highly recommend. It was above the city with incredible views!

San Miguel de Allende: 

We only spent an afternoon in San Miguel and I wish we had more time! We walked around, ate some burgers, peeked into cathedrals and art galleries and did some Christmas shopping in an artisan market with expat vendors selling jewelery and handicrafts. This city has so much charm and I would love to go back.

Both places are a MUST see in Mexico! There is so much to see and do.
