The Feast of Tabernacles 2017 in Mexico will once again be hosted in the beautiful, safe and quiet city of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato.
The bohemian and artistic environment of San Miguel de Allende is unparalleled in very few places in the country. Its cobblestone streets and unique architecture is not only beautiful, but also historic. There are no traffic lights in the city and no busy, hectic lifestyles. This provides Feast-goers plenty of time to spend relaxing and enjoying the weather, art, food and natural surroundings.
San Miguel offers a typical Mexican-colonial, small town experience. From its art galleries to its many fine international restaurants, San Miguel has successfully hosted the Feast of Tabernacles for the Church for many years. The local cuisine is rich, varied and has provided many wonderful family dinners and fellowship opportunities for God’s people.
The tranquility and safety provided by San Miguel are some of its main attractions. These should be taken into consideration by those who are looking for a sun-and-ocean destination. Only three hours from Mexico City, San Miguel de Allende is one of Mexico’s most beautiful treasures. This city has been nominated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its cultural and architectonic wealth, which is representative of the Mexican Baroque.
Located in Guanajuato state, 265 kilometers (165 miles) northeast of Mexico City and 96 kilometers (60 miles) from the state capital, Guanajuato city (and 65 kilometers (41 miles) from Querétaro), San Miguel is located within Mexico’s hilly central highlands. San Miguel de Allende has no international airport, so visitors usually fly into the Leon/Bajio airport, the Queretaro airport or the Mexico City airport. Transportation—by bus, van or taxi—to San Miguel de Allende is available from all three airports at affordable prices.
San Miguel offers a wide range of accommodations fit for all size families; both hotels and rented homes are amply available to stay in during the Feast. Feel free to shop around on the Web and find the perfect temporary dwelling for you. Since the city is small, the rented hall for services is accessible from most anywhere in town. Even from the opposite end of town, it’s just a short taxi ride—20 minutes at the most—which makes it convenient for housing accommodations.
The meeting hall is called Salon Las Brisas, located at Real Salida a Queretaro #145. The closest hotel is Hotel Casa Primavera (this hotel is already fully booked). The Hotel Mision de San Miguel (still within walking distance) is the second closest to the hall. Many hotels around the main downtown plaza area offer faster access to shops, restaurants and local activities.
If you decide to rent a home or stay at a different hotel (one which meets your personal standards and finances), San Miguel de Allende offers a very wide range of hotel options and wonderful homes for rent. Prices range from around US$50 per night up to US$1,000 per night in some of the most exclusive hotels.
This year’s Feast activities will have something for everyone: seniors, couples, youth and children. There will be lots of time to visit the shops and sites San Miguel has to offer. We hope you can come and share God’s wonderful Feast with us in beautiful San Miguel de Allende.
