Mexico's essence is the same as that of the heaped dishes of food served up by the locals: very colourful, full of unique flavour, and deliciously spicy. Help yourself to the sparkling waters of Cancún or the lush vegetation of Mexico's tropical rainforests.

If your tastes run to history Mexico has ancient Mayan ruins to plunder dating back to 500 B.C and for those with a more adventurous palate try Copper Canyon, this picturesque destination, where the background and the sunset melt into one, is ripe for exploring on horseback or on foot (or using your hands, hanging off the red rock canyon itself.). After hot days of red scenery, jungles and spices wash the dust and sand away with a frozen margarita and be re-energised by perky music as Mexico's nightlife takes over.

Best time to go

Mexico is vast and its climate and landscape vary accordingly. The weather is most moderate between October and May, before the uncivilised hot, wet season. Most visitors choose to…

Have a look at our World Weather Guide: for an idea of average temperatures etc.


For anyone going to San Miguel and needing transportation to and from the Airports in Queretaro, Leon or Mexico City or to other towns and sights to see in the area, we highly recommend Reyes Ortiz.

He is not only a very pleasant person but a good businessman. He speaks very good English, is very knowledgeable and informative of San Miguel de Allende and the other cities, towns and attractions in this part of Mexico and has very reasonable rates.

He also gives tours to Dolores Hidalgo, Queretaro, Atotonilco, Guanajuato, Mexico City and other sites.

We used another transportation service earlier, then tried Reyes and we continued to use him for the duration of our trip. He was a tremendous help and delightfully informative. We will definitely be using his services everytime we return to San Miguel.

We Highly Recommend Him.

His Email Address is:
