Tucked high in Mexico’s central highlands, San Miguel de Allende is a picturesque small city with charming cobblestone streets, pleasant climate and spectacular sunsets. Rich in history, with a sophisticated culinary scene and a vibrant arts community, it gracefully balances the old and new. For the past 3 years, San Miguel was voted the world’s best city in the Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Awards, and it led Travel and Leisure’s list in 2021; read this article about its many charms.
