How to Spend 2 Days in San Miguel de Allende

How to Spend 2 Days in San Miguel de Allende

With two days in San Miguel de Allende, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the food, architecture, and artsy appeal of the city, while also dedicating a day to experiences and excursions farther afield. Here’s how best to enjoy just 48 hours in San Miguel de Allende.  


Day 1: Sightseeing and Street Food

**Morning:**Stroll the streets of San Miguel during your first morning in the city, taking in the terra-cotta- and ochre-colored buildings, before admiring the pink-hued, 17th-century Parish of St. Michael the Archangel (Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel), inside and out. Then, take a brief walking tour to hidden spots you might not find alone.

**Afternoon:**As the sun peaks, explore San Miguel’s many artisanal craft stores and art galleries, or wander independently around the colorful street-art displays in the Guadalupe neighborhood. Meanwhile, food lovers may prefer to take a comprehensive street-food tour.

**Night:**Relax on your first night in San Miguel de Allende. If you skipped the afternoon food tour, take one in the evening, or enjoy a romantic horseback ride through the cobblestoned streets of the center. Alternatively, grab dinner in one of San Miguel’s excellent restaurants.

 

Day 2: Broaden Your Horizons

**Morning:**Wake early on day two for an out-of-town excursion. History buffs won’t want to miss the mining ghost town of Mineral de Pozos or the Otomi archaeological site Cañada de la Virgen; guided tours to either typically include round-trip transportation, ideal for travelers on a tight schedule. Or combine adrenaline and relaxation, with horseback riding and hot springs. 

 

**Afternoon:**If you opted out of a full-day trip, there are still plenty of afternoon-only excursion options. Adventurous visitors can try a horseback-riding experience, great for beginners and experts alike, or relax with wine tastings at boutique vineyards.

**Night:**Make the most of your final night in San Miguel de Allende. Splurge on dinner at one of the city’s many fine-dining restaurants before heading to a rooftop bar ormezcalería. Alternatively, combine drinking and dining with a guided taco-and-tequila experience. If it’s Day of the Dead, enjoy an intimate glimpse into the festivities during a guided tour.
