We call it the Party patio, but, you can just hang out and read or sun yourself when there's no party happening! A party of one? Fine.

The Living room is obviously done in very Mexican style colors. Somehow, down here in San Miguel de Allende they aren't garish and get many compliments. Another place for wonderful conversations or simply reading or listening to music or watching television.

Breakfasts are healthy and light.

Our breakfasts are a mix of Mexican favorites like tamales and atole or scrambled eggs Mexican style, and American or Canadian traditionals - cereal and milk, hotcakes, eggs, bacon, etc. Also, we always offer you plenty of fresh fruit that beyond bananas, oranges, cantaloupe, and apples, may include incredibly delicious chirimoyas (custard apples) directly from our own trees. Or, ripe papaya, luscious varieties of mango, or guayaba (guava). And we make breakfast juices of different types. Or simply delicious fresh squeezed orange juice. There is always plenty of hot coffee or the revered Mexican herbal teas that have cured "what ails" you since the pre-Columbian time of the Aztecs and the Mayas.

About San Miguel de Allende, Mexico:

In the middle of the 16th century the Viceroy of New Spain listened to the persuasion of Don Angel de Villafañe that a safe, inland settlement was needed to provide safe haven along the path of those who carried gold and silver from the mines in Zacatecas. The likeliest candidate for an overnighter was San Miguel de los Chichimecas. It had been founded in 1542 by Father Juan de San Miguel, a Franciscan missionary. Because of these three men's actions San Miguel thrives today.

History has placed the following appendixes to the name San Miguel --"de los Chimichecas", later "el Grande," and finally, "de Allende". This town is steeped in colonial history, bubbling with an indefinable romance on every cobblestone street. A distinctly Mexican town with centuries of history, yet, oddly worldly and cosmopolitan in its present culture.

San Miguel was eventually renamed "de Allende" in honor of Ignacio Allende, a martyred home town hero and soldier who fought and died for the cause of New Spanish independence. Relatively recently in its history, during September, 1810, General Allende, who had both hosted and attended clandestine meetings in homes close around the Main Plaza organized there the first Insurgent army to attempt to win Independence from Spain. Firearms, machetes and knives were handed out in the spot where today balloon vendors ply their trade and strolling mariachis serenade an endless stream of young lovers.


La Parroquia in the Sun, the most famous landmark icon, yet, one of the youngest constructions in one of the New World's oldest towns. San Miguel de Allende, Mexico was once one of the largest cities in all of New Spain and the emerging American colonies to the North.

The town itself is a protected national monument, with narrow cobblestone streets, public buildings and private residences over 400 years old with their huge interiors hidden behind massive wooden doors. Perhaps bougainvillea flowers spill over the tops of their stone walls to hint of the tropical splendor within. flowers cascading over the high walls.

There must be at least 50 restaurants within a 15 minute walk of the Jardin in the Central Plaza that are worth checking out! And that doesn't count some fine little Torta (sandwich) shops, roasted chicken specialty diners, caserolas (serving hot casserole dishes), and even some nifty little street vendors for such things as hamburgers.


While San Miguel de Allende appears to be "off the beaten path", it appears to be a journey that the rest of the world, at some time, beats a path to.
