New location for services
To all those who are considering attending San Miguel de Allende for the Feast, I want to inform you that we have had a change in the hall in which we are going to meet.
We have found, with God’s blessing, a much nicer hall and were able to get it for free with the full occupation of the small hotel, which is part of a family-owned business, for the full eight days. Of course, we are very excited about this since the hall usually rents for US$4,500 per day. That’s right, per day!
We have mostly filled the hotel up already. If you need a spot, please send me an email at [email protected] or [email protected]. Once the rooms are filled, I’ll add you on a waiting list. I think we only have about two rooms left (double with one king sized bed). However, if possible, we would like to allow those rooms for the Mexican brethren who are in need of some assistance since this would save them in transportation.
This new hall we will be using for services and other activities is only about 10-15 minutes away from the former hall called: Los Pinos. I am very confident that you will all love the millennial setting this new hall provides, although it is a little further away.
The hall is within the complex of a hotel called Real de Corralejo heading in the direction to Querétaro.
The address is:
Carretera San Miguel de Allende—Querétaro, Corralejo KM 7,
37700 San Miguel de Allende, Gto.
Teléfono: 415 152 5510
We have reserved all the hotel rooms for the Mexican brethren and especially for those who do not have transportation for the Feast, including many of the elderly.
For those of you who wish to rent a home through Airbnb, I would suggest you look into the complex called Zirándaro, which is a very safe, gated community that is only about 10-minute drive away from the hall.
Although San Miguel de Allende is a very small town and most restaurants are located downtown, some of you may want to consider renting a hotel or home in the downtown walking district of San Miguel. The distances from downtown and surrounding areas to the hall by car is about 20-30 minutes depending on the traffic.
We are planning to have a few activities at the hall and if you are looking for convenience, I would suggest Zirándaro. In which case you will need to have a vehicle.
If you are staying downtown, public transportation, (Uber, taxi, etc.) are always available. If you are considering renting a vehicle for the Feast, be aware that parking downtown is very difficult, especially if you are unfamiliar as to where the parking garages are, which are very few.
Also, if you have registered for the Feast, you do not have to confirm with me or anyone else. You are all accepted and will have a spot at the Feast since the hall is large enough for about 600 people. If you have not yet registered for the Feast, please do so since that will very much help us in the planning for activities and also for the distribution of the hall.
Thank you all very much for your cooperation and consideration.
See you all at the Feast in San Miguel de Allende!
The Feast of Tabernacles 2022 in Mexico will once again be hosted in the beautiful and artistic 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, almost adjacent to the meeting hall. 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. With the current rate of exchange at about 20 pesos to 1USD, your second tithe will surely stretch further than many other Feast sites around the world.
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 maybe limited due to COVID-19, but we are sure that fellowship will be enjoyed as permitted and abundant time to enjoy the city will surely make this one of your best Feasts ever. 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.
