A UNESCO World Heritage site, and a beloved city filled with Mexican culture and history, San Miguel de Allende also offers nature- and activity-based options closeby. Here are a few special ones to add one of my favorite destinations in the world.
Just eight minutes from San Miguel de Allende toward Celaya, “El Hotel View” focuses on the surrounding landscape. This boutique property offers firepit experiences by candlelight, movie screenings, sunset teepee experiences and moonlight dinners with roses and a three-course menu.
View also offers wellness activities at Aruma Spa, including hydromassage with salts and flowers, and unique therapies such as medical biomagnetism, bioenergetics and osteopathy.
Off property, get out into local prehistory on a cave painting expedition, or soar on a hot air balloon ride.
Also on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende, Finca Luna Serena is home to the region’s resident experts in extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and oil-based beauty products. This farm offers lunches of salads, balsamic infusions in cheeses, chicken, steak, salmon, desserts and more.
You can rent a country house on the property for one night…
