The rich come from across the World; locals come in form the surrounding villages and towns. The Mexican middle class pour into town from Mexico City on the weekends. If you like to people-watch, take a seat on one of the park benches; this is...More

Right in front of the "Parroquia", in the heart of San Miguel. Cast iron benches under the trees make for a good resting spot in the shade. Around the square are gift shops, restaurants, ice cream, etc.

We have dined at El Jardin a few times now and we have not been disappointed. The service is impeccable and the food is always great. I love the Escargot and the Oyster Rockefeller.

I am certain like most reviewers, this is a must see. In fact, you cannot help but see it while visiting SMA. Everything in this area is beautiful. Sit peacefully under one of these well manicured trees and I hope you'll agree.

Cute shops, lovely area for all things social. We were lucky enough to be here during a wedding ceremony and procession. So much fun and joy during a special time. Great parade and a donkey carrying tequila shots for ALL!
