Things To Do
I'm not going to lie, there wasn't a whole lot to do other than wander around and chill on rooftops, which actually isn't a bad thing but here are other options just in case.
1. Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel - This park/church is right in the middle of the city, you'll be walking by it a bunch.
2. Fabrica La Aurora - A renovated textile mill that now has cafes, shops & galleries with works by local artists.
3. Instituto Allende - This was the location of the wedding but is a college during the day and is pretty cool to check out.
4. Escondido Place - A spa that is north of the city with both outdoor and indoor pools to get some extra relaxation if that is what you need!
5. Charco Del Ingenio - If you are looking to get out into nature a little bit more this botanical gardens will get you up close to cacti, flowers, and a little lake.
6. Parque Benito Juarez - A giant park with things ranging from people doing Tai Chi to old pictures of San Miguel.
7. El Mirador - This little "hike" up city streets takes you up to the top of San Miguel and provides a great overlook of the city.
If you are looking for other options or guided tours I think these are great options!
1. Lavanda Cafe - If you search for restaurants in San Miguel you'll come across Lavanda and the word is out. I stopped by each day I was there and twice there was a wait and once we went before it opened and a line formed behind us. The food and coffee are good though!
2. Cumpanio - They have sandwiches, salads, soups and snacks typically under $15. They are most known for the bakery portion and more specifically the croissants.
3. Chocolates y Churros San Agustín - This can be tricky to find as it's apart of another restaurant. I thought the churros was pretty good and they put a topping on it but a churro is a churro.
4. La Mezcalería - A Mexican food restaurant with innovate drinks.
5. The Restaurant - If you travel all the way down to Mexico and want American food I guess this placed looked good.
6. La Azotea - There is a wide variety of food options with a cool rooftop!
7. Luna Tapas Bar - The restaurant sits on top of the Rosewood, which is a fancy ass hotel. I thought the food was a little pricey but was still worth it because it was still good and the view was amazing!
8. Don Taco Tequila - More of a pub style of restaurant with great tacos and chips and salsa!
9. Sabroso Taquería - They offer great Mexico City Style tacos tacos in a cool setting. There is also a rooftop terrace with gorgeous views of the town and a Chicago style pizza place near by.
10. Restaurante Nectar - There are limited tables and focus more on being a vegan or vegetarian restaurant with some seafood options.
11. Ki'bok Coffe SMA - They have really good coffee right in the center of town with a cool rooftop. I was also able to use my credit card which I found helpful!
12. Zenteno Café - It's a little cafe with not a lot of food options but have thins like quiche, which was good, but focus more on the coffee!
13. Inside Cafe - They have things like freshly baked Ciabatta, Focaccia, Bagels, Muffins and Cookies!
14. Tres Marias - The food was good and has a rooftop that is located right by a giant church which makes for a cool backdrop while you eat and drink a paloma!
