Mexico: San Miguel de Allende
A colorful, picture-perfect colonial city founded in 1542, today’s San Miguel remains a peaceful artist’s colony, which embraces newcomers, and boasts an air of tranquility.
Upon your arrival in Mexico City, you will be met by your driver and transferred privately to your nearby accommodation. Dine at your hotel this evening, enjoying a spectacular view of the Zocalo, the National Place, and Mexico City’s Cathedral.
Following a light breakfast this morning, you will be picked up at your hotel and privately transferred to the charming colonial town of San Miguel de Allende.
En route to San Miguel, you’ll visit Querétaro, one of the cleanest and safest cities in Mexico, known for its beautifully preserved colonial architecture. The historic downtown reflects almost 500 years of Mexican history and tradition, which you’ll witness during your visit to the ancient aqueduct, temples, mansions, and palaces of the city.
Later today, you’ll arrive at your retreat, perched in the hills overlooking San Miguel de Allende, where, for the next two days, your focus will become relaxation and quality of life. Here, you’ll enjoy your stay in a charming adobe cabana with modern yet minimalist amenities, rejuvenating yourself with daily yoga, and by indulging in light and delicious Mexican cuisine comprised of herbs from the garden, fresh produce, local poultry and fish, and tortillas prepared the old-fashioned way.
Wake up this morning for a group yoga class, a fresh way to start your day, after which you’ll enjoy a delicious Mexican breakfast in the antique adorned lodge on the property.
The retreat provides quality spa and holistic health services in a natural and inspired setting, allowing guests to rejuvenate, relax, and deepen their self-awareness. Enjoy a treatment (included) this afternoon, which will leave you feeling clear-minded and physically balanced.

Later today, you will meet your guide for a private two- to three-hour tour of San Miguel de Allende. You’ll have the remainder of the day in which to wander along San Miguel’s cobble-stoned streets, pastel-colored colonial buildings, and flower-filled patios, before returning to the retreat for a hearty dinner. There are superb shopping options in San Miguel for those who desire a bit of retail therapy.
Start your day once again with a morning yoga class.
After breakfast, you’ll meet your guide in the hotel lobby for your private transfer back to Mexico City. En route, you will visit the site of the famous Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon at Teotihuacan. During its peak period, this ancient city was home to approximately 20,000 people, as the capital of Mexico’s largest pre-Hispanic empire. Stay overnight in the city center.
You will be privately transferred to Mexico City airport for your return flight home, or to continue on to your next Willing Foot destination.
