San Miguel Claims “Best International City for Food” in 2016


It’s a new year which often means that we set new goals for the forthcoming year.  Among those goals are the common resolutions to get fit, have a healthier lifestyle and here in our family … put some adventure into your life!

Whether the latter is on your list or not, we encourage you to read on.

There are cities all over the world that deserve some of the finest press stories on the globe, and San Miguel is no stranger to front page news.  Throughout 2016, our historic community was blessed with a variety of international stories that just skimmed the surface of all the treasures that come with visiting our countryside vacation rental in San Miguel.

One of our favorites was the story that appeared in a luxury travel magazine in 2016.  Mexico’s iconic colonial city, San Miguel de Allende, was the only city in the Americas to be included in Travel + Leisure magazine’s World’s Best Awards 2016 reader survey of the 10 Best International Cities for Food, thanks to its world-class restaurants and unique cuisine.

There are “on an average” 76 divine places to dine that range from 5-star restaurants to cafes that have been handed down for generations.  Our favorites happen to be those that take advantage of the country’s gentle temperatures that welcome outdoor seating most of the year.  We always seek those who offer roof-top seating where you can take in the city’s unmatched panoramas.

Add to the mix the fact that San Miguel offers the best of all within the culinary worlds with options from the most contemporary to the traditional colonial fare.

The city also hosts a number of culinary festivals, including Sabores (Flavors) San Miguel fair each June and the San Miguel Food Festival in Julyboth of which attract international chefs and culinary fans and experts to our destination.

And we can’t forget about the ‘people watching” while dining!  We are home to more than 60 nationalities that have recognized the endless benefits that come with living, working, and certainly retiring to San Miguel.  With such a diverse community, we’re sure you’ll feel right at home.

Make this year your “adventure year” and come stay with us at our beautiful private vacation estate for your vacation to San Miguel in 2017.
