It’s no secret San Miguel de Allende is universally regarded as one of the prettiest towns in Mexico. The Spanish Colonial gem has an impressive inventory of fine, 17th and 18th century architecture and a remarkably cosmopolitan pulse for a small city. You’re as likely to meet Mexicans, as you are Americans, Canadians, Europeans and other citizens of the world within the long established expat community. In 2016, CNN cited San Miguel as one of the top 10 places to retire in the world. And the 30% increase in luxury home sales from 2015 to 2016, as well as robust projections for 2017, indicates there’s never been a better time to invest in this solid market.
Add, year round festivals, cultural programs, arts events, film and musical series rarely found outside major metropolitan centers and you’ll begin to understand why San Miguel was voted the #3 destination in the world and #1 destination in Mexico by Conde Nast Traveller in 2016. Its burgeoning gastronomic scene has made it an international culinary destination. A thriving arts community with legendary galleries, exceptional artisan markets, and vibrant traditional culture enhance the experience. Fashionable boutiques, cutting edge architecture, innovative home design and internationally recognized fine hotels– to say nothing of the profound natural beauty of the high desert with its sublime, spring-like climate year round– further renders the portrait of San Miguel as a center of the very best things in life.
