The colonial Mexican cities are some of the most beautiful cities in Mexico. We visited San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato and Morelia. Also magical: Cuernavaca, Oaxaca and Querétaro.
San Miguel de Allende
A mask museum? Botanical gardens? Magical rooftop bars? Visit San Miguel de Allende for more than just art galleries and colonial architecture.
Don’t look for a cookie-cutter hotel at Casa de Sierra Nevada. Rooms and suites are sprinkled in colonial mansions in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
Dubbed the “Sistine Chapel of Mexico,” the remarkable Sanctuary of Atotonilco is a riot of color, decorated with oil paintings, poems, sculptures and frescoes.
We bet Santa would love to get his hands on the toys at the whimsical Toy Museum in San Miguel de Allende (Museo La Esquina). It’s packed with 2,000+ hand-crafted Mexican toys!
