Where is it?
My neighborhood is considered to be the the desirable in town. Along with being a short walk to the center, it is a 5 minute walk to Juarez Park, which is the largest park in town and has lots of activities during a typical week. A very popular restaurant-bar serving the very best seafood is located a 3 minute walk away, along with numerous small shops and tiendas where basic food supplies can be found. The architecture in the neighborhood is essentially original with cobbled streets and remarkable colors.
A short cab ride away is "La Aurora", which is San Miguels version of 5th Avenue in NYC. Many people from around Mexico come here just to shop there. It has all of the best in art, home furnishings, antiques, jewelry and it is easy to spend a delightful afternoon viewing all of the treasures.
Should you desire to explore outside the city, Guanajuato (called one of the most beautiful cities in North America) is only 1 1/2 hours away. There are tours which are available for a reasonable cost. Also wonderful is a tour to Pozos, which is an old silver mining town about an hour away. It is mystical and magical and has quite incredible photo opportunities.
Also available is a trip to our local pyramids which have recently become available to the public and horseback riding trips in the mountains.
We also have a local fine arts theatre, an opera house, and many musical events with performers from all over the world.
Do not think that the town has only Mexican food to offer. When I moved here almost 20 years ago, we had 4-5 really good restaurants. Now we have dozens of them offering most any cuisine. And some of the best will even deliver if you want a quiet evening at home.
You will want to do it all!!!
