About the neighbourhood
The neighborhood is within the perimeter of the historic Centro area of San Miguel and among houses inhabited by wonderful full-time residents, about 25% of which are non-native expats. Buses DO NOT travel on our street, which is a benefit in terms of lower noise levels. The house does front the street, so a bit of car traffic could be heard in the late evening, but I have had very few complaints about it from guests.
Getting around
Taxis to get around town are quite inexpensive (about MN40/trip within the town center). Taxis could also be hired for short excursions outside of town. Shuttles to/from the airport or to other cities could be contracted at reasonable prices with Bajio Go (check Google for website link, from which reservations could be made).
