As of July 15th, travelers can enjoy San Miguel de Allende while businesses must have state health certifications to operate
San Miguel de Allende, known as the “Heart of Mexico,” will start reopening to tourists today, with hotels working with a maximum 40% capacity and everyone must adhere to social distancing and mask protection.
On May 25, the city launched its “Health First” certification, which is granted after local health and safety officials evaluate each location and certify compliance with sanitary protocols for reopening. This was followed on July 2 with the city receiving the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Safe Travels seal.
“Obtaining the WTTC’s ‘Safe Travels’ seal endorses this work and reaffirms that San Miguel de Allende is properly ready in terms of sanitation,” said Laura Torres-Septien, President of Tourism Board.
The town has a mystical quality that is unlike anything many travelers have experienced. With picturesque cobblestone streets and Spanish colonial architecture, the city showcases traditional architecture with modern excitements. For example, San Miguel de Allende has a spectacular setting for hot-air balloon rides and open eatery food tours, a flourishing wine country and tequila fields, and rooftop bars and restaurants.
Those planning to make their way to San Miguel in its current state will find the city fits well with the new realities of social distancing and the craving for outdoor activities. El Charco del Ingenio, Cañada de la Virgen, Benito Juárez Park, El Chorro Park, and Coyote Canyon Guanajuato are all exciting spots that visitors should be sure to enjoy.
