San Miguel de Allende: Mexico's Colonial Gem

Not only is this 16th century mountain town a treat for anyone going to visit (the city boasts old colonial charm while offering every modern convenience), this article by International Living, suggests that it's the place where you'll find it the easiest to transition into expat life - "hands down."

The article describes San Miguel de Allende very well: "Colonial buildings, lovingly restored, line the town’s main streets, and beautiful churches and squares are around every corner, [where you'll also find] excellent restaurants, superb arts and crafts, and a temperate climate that’s hard to beat." Not only that, but it's easy to get by speaking English in the town, due to the community of foreign retirees already settled there.

The town is, as one San Miguel retiree refers to it, "an intriguing blend of serious and fun.”
