We took a winter vacation early in the year (2015) in San Miguel de Allende. It is a popular travel destination and photographer destination; an enclave of expatriates. In some ways it is not Mexico. In a lot of ways it is Mexico. Be prepared for walking up and down hills with narrow sidewalks and cobblestones. Included here is a photograph of the most iconic building in San Miguel de Allende. It is La Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, known more simple as the Parroquia. Visit my website gallery San Miguel de Allende to see more images from this trip....

There are no small hotels or B&Bs on the beach as you will see from the photographs. The buildings are large hotels and condominium complexes. These images were obtained using a camera suspended below a kite...
