Our first blog of the month listed some of our favorite things to do with our children in San Miguel. It also included some insight from GlobeTrotting.com which we follow all the time for things to do and see through the world.
We had so much fun putting our first list together that we’re continuing this last blog of the month with a few more ideas for you and your family to enjoy while on vacation in San Miguel.
Top Things to Do with Your Kids in San Miguel de Allende
La Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel
You can’t possibly leave San Miguel without a stop to capture the magnificence of the La Parroquia – the iconic pink church that towers over our UNESCO city. Although it looks like it should be preserved in history, it’s actually home to a local and very active parish. Dating back to the 17th century, it overflows with architectural and well has historical educational opportunities for all to absorb and enjoy.
A perfect fit for your trip to La Parroquia is a stop to BOSCO Gelato which is just around the corner. Here is where real homemade ice cream takes the cake as one of our best suggestions for some of the strangest flavors you will ever enjoy.
Just when you thought you had enough sweets and ice cream treats, you’re not done yet! Plan a day trip to Dolores Hidalgo to discover all that this quaint community is so well known for, and then some. At the top of the list … more ice cream … with many more interesting flavors to tease your tastes. Friend Pork Shrimp, Avacado, or Octopus ice cream anyone?
Mercado de Artesanías
We like to get here early in the morning to absorb all that this daily market has to offer locals and visitors alike. Located in the alleyway between the food market and Calle Loreto is a display of some of the best and brightest locally grown and prepared fruits, vegetables, honey and homemade goods.
If you have teenagers in tow, make a bike tour a -must-do.” We always recommend our guests who stay at our vacation rental in San Miguel to book a bike tour through the family-run business of Bici Burro. They offer a number of tours and have 27 aluminum speed mountain bikes in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes, as well as all the safety gear.
Pool Side Party at Casa Magdalena
For a perfect ending to a perfect family vacation in San Miguel, we always suggest a farewell pool party right here at Casa Magdalena. Let our friendly staff spoil you and your family as you relax in and around our heated black bottom pool, sip on a tropical beverage under the cabana and reflect on your vacation as our guest in our hometown.
