With San Miguel flavor
By Jade Arroyo
We encourage you to explore the city, feeling the culture that exudes from it and the flavor that its originality gives it. Enjoy!
Tour the ruins at La Cañada de la Virgen. There are several businesses in town that can take you there, and you can select how you want to go… bike, horseback riding, walking. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and sun protection. These pyramids have welcomed the public since the INAH (National Institute of Anthropology and History) opened them. Here you can feel all the strength of history, of the ancestors; experiencing the power and simple greatness of nature.
To regain energy after the adventure at the wild, the body needs a
hearty meal. Who doesn’t likes Mexican antojitos? Probably most people declare themselves fans of Mexican cuisine. If you would like a casual, tasty meal and remain in the Centro of town, go to La Alborada (Sollano 11). At this restaurant you can please your palate with delicious pozole, cecina or enchiladas. Yumm!
Afterwards, if you feel like seeing art, visit the toy museum Museo La Esquina (Núñez 40), where besides having a permanent display of a large popular Mexican toy collection, is now featuring the exhibition “Alma de Cartón” (Cardboard Soul), which is formed of cardboard dolls, customized by the artists with their own touch and vision. On your way out, stop by the gift store; you will feel like a child again.
¡Try the Sunset Bar (Mesones 101, across the street from Teatro Angel Peralta), to finish your day. This bar has a contemporary and chilled vibe. The charm of this place is its terrace, which has a privileged view of town. It’s a good way to celebrate the coming of spring, by having a drink while watching one of the many beautiful San Miguel sunsets. The margaritas are the specialty (quite exotic) and there is a tapas menu as well.
