I have been in San Miguel for 18 years and really love it. I am president of the San Miguel de Allende Tourist Council and president of the Food Bank. I am a hotel lover, and that leads me to get up early in the morning. My day usually starts with Yoga. The teachers here in San Miguel are very good and each of them has a unique touch. I go to classes with Anabel Cárdenas who has been teaching for many years and knows a lot about the subject. But I also go to classes by Alex Trejo who teaches in different places—in Los Senderos, Hernandez Macías, or somewhere else.
Another of the jewels that the city offers us is Charco del Ingenio and I love walking about there to charge myself with energy while I contemplate a beautiful landscape in nature. Sometimes I like to go for a walk with my dogs at Parque Juárez. What I particularly like here is that it’s a quiet place, with lovely architecture and a good atmosphere. For breakfast I like to go to Pegaso or Panio; or perhaps get some gorditas made by the nuns on the way to La Cieneguita. It all depends on what I fancy. One of my favorites is always Café Lavanda. Another part of my perfect day is to go out to eat with my friends on a terrace, or to a dinner spot for a chicken stew or tortas. El Manantial is another place where I really like the food. Weekends are a bit more relaxed for me and I like to go out to the countryside like a vineyard or a little farther on the outskirts of San Miguel to be with nature. I really love living here; I feel as if I were outside but inside San Miguel. When I want to relax I go to the hot springs early either to La Gruta because it is a very clean place and the jet from the cavern is fabulous, or I go to Nirvana, where in addition to having a relaxing time, I can eat a delicious meal.
