SAN MIGUEL 

Located at over 6,000 feet in Mexico’s central mountain highlands, San Miguel de Allende is one of the country’s most beautiful cities. About 200 miles northwest of Mexico City, and 200 miles northeast of Guadalajara, San Miguel is graced with year-round mild weather and offers a vibrant cultural, culinary, and creative art scene, in addition to its natural charm. room, dining room, and huge patio.
 
The views were stunning! This location is easily walkable to the center plaza. Coming back we took taxis about half the time and that was very inexpensive. "We enjoyed our stay here tremendously; the hosts are helpful and offered many great tips for a wonderful visit."  
Highly recommend!

HOSTS

Rocky Long and Gwen Dunn are your hosts and the innkeepers at Las Terrazas San Miguel. They grew up and lived east of Seattle, Washington most of their lives. Prior to acquiring this property, Gwen and Rocky were guests here themselves. They fell in love with the city, the culture, and the tranquility of San Miguel. In fact, they enjoyed Las Terrazas so much they decided to settle in San Miguel de Allende.

 

A short four-block downhill stroll from Las Terrazas you’ll find the center of town, El Jardin, the central square and bandstand. There, the main church, the Parroquia, with its famous spire and glowing pink stone facade, is your landmark. We’re just minutes away. All around cobblestone streets offer alleyways, patios, and terraced restaurants to explore at your leisure. You’ll find shops, galleries, restaurants, and music venues are within easy reach. 

 

If you care to roam further, to botanical gardens, vineyards, far-flung sights, or farm-to-table restaurants, plenty of taxis and private drivers are at your service.


"We have chosen to enjoy our lives in one of the great cultural cities in all of Mexico. We love the people, the arts, the music, the culture, and the spectacular weather."

TRAVEL 

Visitors generally fly into one of three airports: Leon, Queretaro, or Mexico City.

 

Both Querétaro (QRO) and Leon (BJX) are about 90 minutes from San Miguel. There are two ways we suggest to arrive from either airport: 

a private car service or shuttle van is available. Las Terrazas can review your options and advise you or arrange for a private car.  


If you are arriving in Mexico City (CDMX) the travel time is approximately 4.5 hours to San Miguel.

Las Terrazas can make suggestions for you.

WEATHER

Because we are so high up, humidity is quite low even during the warmest months of the year, April and May. During these months,  try to walk on the shady side of the street, and wear a hat.

 

We enjoy average high temperatures between 73 and 88 degrees Fahrenheit, no matter the season.  Fall and early winter bring bright, warm, sunny days, with cool to cold nights. Winter (mid-November till February) can be brisk, requiring heat at night; however, many people come here during this time of year to abandon the extreme cold and snowy climates of their northern homes.

 

Bring layers and warm socks. January till March can be an especially busy time here, but don't overlook the allure of  fall when there are numerous festivals, like Independence day (Sept. 16) and the week of Day of the Dead (Nov.1&2) Christmas and Easter (Semana Santa) are also busy and fabulous, with days delicious and filling. Just do yourself a favor and stay here. ​​

PESOS

The best way to get pesos is through an ATM machine, but machines at the airport generally have lower exchange rates. Not to worry; there are several ATMs around San Miguel’s main square. To ensure a smooth transaction, it’s a good idea to let your credit card company know you will be traveling ahead of time. 

 

The symbol for the peso is $, similar to the American dollar, but the sign for the dollar has two lines going through the S.  If you request a $300 withdrawal, you are actually getting 300 pesos, (or just over $17) NOT 300 dollars. When you withdraw cash note that

all ATMs have an “other amount” key which will allow you to withdraw up to 9,000 pesos (about 525 US dollars, depending upon the current exchange rate).
