Gay San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende,
Mexico

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Nestled high in the cool hills of the Mexican Altiplano, San Miguel De Allende is perhaps one the hippest, busiest, most charming towns in Mexico. More importantly, this seductive little city, with clear nights and warm days, offers the gay and lesbian traveler loads of inexpensive and high-quality options to study Spanish or the arts. In 2008, San Miguel de Allende became a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a distinction that few places in the world can claim.

There is a good selection of gay friendly hotels, inns and guesthouses in San Miguel de Allende for the gay and lesbian traveler. Prices and amenities offered ranged from budget to luxurious for there is plenty of choice for the discerning gay and lesbian traveler. Long-term gay and lesbian visitors who aren't renting villas or apartments can negotiate great discounts and reduced rates in the off-season.

High season runs from December 15 to April1, when the days are clear and sunny, and nights are cool. April through August is low season, with hotter days in the spring and rain in the summer. Just remember that at 6400 feet, it can get cold.

If you can, gay and lesbian travelers should try to be in San Miguel de Allende for Semana Santa - Easter Week. Although it gets crowded with Mexican families from Mexico City and surrounding villages, the festivities and processions are some of the best in Latin America.

Getting around the town is easy – just walk! Alternatively, take a local bus or grab a taxi if planning to travel outside the town or one of the uphill destinations. Some people like to bike, but the streets in town are cobbled, so unless you like to jiggle and bounce, use your feet.

San Miguel has an enormous number of restaurants for a town its size, ranging from cheap and authentic Mexican dishes to gourmet French and Italian. Most of the better restaurants use purified water for ice but take care with vegetables and fruits. Montezuma's Revenge is always a risk so be careful if eating off the street or in more off-the-beaten-path places.

Without question, the Jardin, the central town square, is the main attraction of San Miguel de Allende. Gay and lesbian travelers can hang out for a few hours, listen to music from strolling musicians, or read beneath a shady tree. Alternatively, go church hopping and check out the Parroquia, the Oratorio, or any one of the numerous other churches in town.

For real local flavor, Don‘t miss the Tuesday Market, a sprawling flea market that takes place all day every Tuesday on the outskirts of town. On a hot day, head to La Gruta, a private park on the road to Dolores Hidalgo, with 4 hot spring pools that vary from warm to steaming. Swim the blue canal to the grotto pool and stand in line with everyone else to be baptized by the gushing hot water that flows from a hole in the wall.

So, for the gay and lesbian traveler looking for a very special Mexican destination, San Miguel de Allende is one well worth visiting. By the say, it’s also one of the best places in all of Latin America to learn Spanish or take art classes.
