      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.

Indagare's Samantha Rifkin
“The charming colonial mountain town has perpetual spring weather. Spend the mornings shopping at the local markets and boutiques (a favorite is Kingsley Market) and finish the day with dinner at one of San Miguel’s many excellent restaurants.”
