A blend of the old and the new, the quaint and the cosmopolitan, San Miguel de Allende is arguably the prettiest town in Mexico. Join Pacific Horticulture as we explore its narrow cobblestone streets, leafy courtyards, and private gardens this coming February for a warming winter getaway filled with art, history, gardens, and food.
