SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE, MEXICO
A candy-colored colonial jewel of central Mexico, San Miguel is the cultural capital quickly rising in the ranks of travel destinations. Taste, shop, and site-see your way through the historic architecture and vibrant art scene of this small city in Guanajuato, and keep an eye out for the growing (and often extravagant) wedding business.

WHAT WE'RE DOING
 
Visiting the city's most famous cultural icon, the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel. Most of the church was built in the late 1600s, while the glorious pink limestone "wedding cake" towers were added at the end of the 19th century. Step inside to gaze upon the revered image of Christ of the Conquest, made from cornstalks and orchid bulbs from as far back as the 16th century. 

WHERE WE'RE EATING
 
For reasonably-priced Guanajuatan fare at a kitschy spot most frequented by locals, stop by Don Felix Tacos for a taste of the surrounding lands. Of course, you can't go wrong with the taco platter sampler, but why not try something local while you're in? The enchilades del portal and chilis en nogada will leave you thirsting for more, and probably literally thirsting for some cold water after the chilis kick in.

WHERE WE'RE STAYING

At its super central location just steps away from the town square, the Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada provides the perfect launchpad to explore the city from. Each room is uniquely designed in this colonial-styled complex made up of six connected buildings, and the staff couldn't be happier to grant your every wish.

WHAT WE'RE TAKING
 
A stylish sun hat is super necessary to keep those UV rays at bay in sunny central Mexico. We love this version from Brixton, with its tight weave to prevent any stray rays from sneaking through and its mixture of neutral straw and hunter green that is sure to pair with any outfit, perfect for all manner of activities.
