We were there for New Years 2013 and this is the place to be on any day. Early in the mornings, people are sipping coffee, reading their paper and/or watching children play. As the day goes by the square and the Jardin becomes full of colors, aromas and activity. The trees and the park were so wonderfully groomed and clean. A real experience in San Miguel!

So festive and fun! We loved the Mariachi bands (there were 3 at different corners of El Jardin one night!), the Christmas tree, the beautiful churches that are lit up, the giant puppets that walked about and the warm, upbeat crowds that sang and danced along!

It's right in front of the parroquia. Lots of activity - families hanging out, vendors, kids playing with balloons, performers. It's the place for people watching. We came during New Year's Day and the Christmas tree was still lit up. Up the steps going towards the entrance of the church is a hot chocolate vendor. She also sells tea. God to have when you're cold.

This is truly the town square where most days people meet and socialize. There are restaurants, the city museum, and at times street performers. We've been there for Dia de Los muertos, Christmas and at other times of the year, We enjoy watching families of all generations interact.

This is the front room of San Miguel de Allende. Dozens of groups of families and friends gather to talk, snack and people watch. It's an easy mix of locals and residents. You can just say "no" to the vendors. Even better, just say yes to the oddest trinket you see. The Jardin is surrounded by history, eating and shopping. Venture down the side streets for all manner of each.
