Designing Your Journey
Work with Indagare to design the perfect itinerary for an immersive journey. Our travel experts know the destination inside and out, and they can make recommendations based on your travel needs and preferences.
Essential San Miguel de Allende
A classic San Miguel itinerary balances art and culinary experiences with time to stroll the streets. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.
Day 1: City Tour
Get to know the city on a walking tour with an expert guide. Starting in the colorful, historic city center, you will tour the iconic central plaza and the famous pink church, la Parroquia, which boasts gothic-style architecture. Your guide will then take you through the wandering cobblestone streets for an insider’s view of San Miguel.
Day 2: Cultural Immersion
After a breakfast of fresh fruit and some time to relax poolside at your hotel, enjoy an art tour of San Miguel with a local curator or artist. Alternatively, Indagare can also arrange a fun class or workshop, such as a mixology class, a Spanish class or an apothecary class. Enjoy dinner at a hotspot restaurant.
Day 3: Hot Air Balloon
Wake up early this morning for a special experience arranged by Indagare: a private hot-air balloon adventure. You will be in the air for roughly forty minutes, taking in the sheer size of San Miguel de Allende and the surrounding valley. Once the gentle flight is over you will toast with sparkling wine, before heading to enjoy breakfast at a nearby restaurant. Spend the afternoon at your leisure exploring the city’s boutiques or relaxing at your hotel’s rooftop.
Where To Stay
We only feature hotels that we can vouch for first-hand. At many of them, Indagare members receive special amenities, including upgrades, early check-in, breakfast, spa credits and more. Look for the Indagare Plus logo in the reviews.
