San Miguel de Allende is my favorite colonial city in Mexico. I only spent 12 hours there, but if you have the chance, you should definitely consider staying 2 or 3 days.

The city is filled with tiny streets, colorful colonial buildings and plenty of shops!
From small arts & crafts boutiques focusing on regional artists and designers to galleries and high end interior design stores, I can assure you will fall in love with this town!

The best part is that San Miguel de Allende has always been a foodie destination.
While some restaurant mostly specialize in the local organic products from the surrounding farms, others are there exploring and revisiting all types of cuisine.

Haute cuisine

I can’t recommend this restaurant enough!
It is a place were the locals go because it is alway good.
The restaurant, set in an old colonial building, is lovely, especially the courtyard.
