I returned, safe and sound. Spent most of the time in Mexico City, but also visited San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuanto. All were beautiful and awesome in their own ways. The food was soooooooooo damn good.
Going back to Mexico City for Christmas. Anyone ever travel internationally with a pet? Planning on taking the family mutt this time.
how was san miguel de allende?
San Miguel was beautiful. Very vibrant, very active little town with lots of Mexican culture and history, a great street scene, tons of art studios and shops, and very easy to walk. It's become a hotspot for US expatriates and tourists, so there was definitely more Americans, and more English being spoken, than other areas. While this inherently isn't a downside it has caused San Miguel to become overly crowded, overpriced, and the focus on catering to tourists seems to have left the citizens of San Miguel behind.
Overall I preferred Guanajuato. Same bright, vibrant, active feeling as San Miguel, but the city was a little larger with more to do. We went to Guanajuato in the middle of El Cervantino, so the city was packed 24/7 with people outside partying and playing music all night long. Food was cheap. Street vendors everywhere. The tunnel system in the city was both amazing and terrifying. Lots of interesting museums. Beautiful theater. Was an amazing city.
