Glow Guide to San Miguel De Allende, Mexico

Tara spent 48 hours in the charming and magical gem of a city San Miguel de Allende and fell in love. This gem of a city has wonder around every corner, preserving old world charm with cosmopolitan flare.

Nestled between two mountains in the heart of Mexico lies San Miguel de Allende, a pristine colonial town that truly embodies sophistication, artistic beauty, and charm. San Miguel de Allende is said to have been built upon a quartz crystal, so there is no wonder why this place ensues such magic. It was the first place that the Mexicans declared independence from the Spaniards, serving as a hub of strength and Mexican culture. You really can’t help but fall in love with this town.

Colorful facades, cobblestoned streets, ringing cathedral bells all throughout the day (there are tons of old-world cathedrals throughout the city), and wonderful people make this place special. Behind every unassuming (yet colorful) door is a magical wonderland waiting to be explored. The entire city is a UNESCO world heritage site, in order to preserve the beauty and special atmosphere. Along with all this old-world charm, there is modern and progressive growth within the city, with some of the coolest bars, shops, and restaurants we’ve ever experienced.

One of the most difficult parts about visitng SMdeA is getting there, which really just adds to the charm. There is no direct flight and you’ll need to drive in from further locals. But this just means that if you end up here, you’re supposed to be here. The city is the cultural hub of so much art and creativity, and the home to Casa Dragones tequila (where Tara stayed). Explore the incredible local food, find some amazing one-of-a-kind objects and jewelry, and revel in the relaxing vibes of this very special Mexican city.
