This is a great way to spend an afternoon. Take the kids and experience life in an authentic Mexican village. See the crafts they make and sell, get an authentic taste of REAL Mexican food...all prepared by local women. Learn some Otomi...the language of the ancient Aztecs...and just have fun getting to know some of the indigenous people. The town, Augustine Gonzales, is just about 15 minutes outside of San Miguel de Allende. You can drive yourself or transportation can be furnished. I LOVED this tour!!!
