About Bonita

San Miguel is an art and culture capital of Mexico.

Located high in the mountains of Guanajuato, traditions of joyous living continue from generations past. The people of this beautiful and historic community embrace their historic, cultural and spiritual life by hosting continuous celebrations and festivals. Art studios, cafes, Shamanic gatherings, roving musicians, and beautiful public gardens are plentiful and welcoming.

Our 2018 Spring Tour will combine the awesome artistry of San Miguel de Allende with an amazing adventure to Michoacán to the mountain where the Monarch Butterfly Migration culminates.

We are only inviting an intimate group of about 10 guests to join us with this special excursion. We want to be sure that everyone has a truly wonderful time and enjoying this unique sojourn into the fantastic magic that is Mexico.

Your Guides

The Itinerary

We will arrive at San Miguel de Allende and stay at the lovely Casa Calderoni. This charming B&B's owners, Merry and Ben, look forward to sharing this lovely city's art culture with us. They curate several galleries, including their own and the famous Fabrica La Aurora.

Following a dreamy breakfast, on our first morning we will enjoy a unwind at one of the many yoga retreat centers in San Miguel. Enjoy your choice of a guided yoga or meditation class, booking a massage or healing service, or relaxing by a garden pool. For lunch, we will enjoy a food tour with The Taste of San Miguel, sampling at a variety of local cafes while learning about the rich cultural history of this lovely town. Our first day will culminate with a delightful element of local magic. Don't forget to bring your swimsuits as we will dine in the underground thermal waters of The Mayan Baths.

San Miguel is home to the great cathedral Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel. No matter what your beliefs, the Sunday service is an experience to enjoy. Conveniently within walking distance from Casa Calderoni, we will return via the Mercado de Artesanias. We will spend the rest of the day walking through the historic district and art community on "photo safari" with Ursy. Our evening will land us in the delectable Pueblo Viejo, famed for it's creative local cuisine, live music and local art.

A morning to relax and enjoy local cafes, museums and galleries. In the afternoon we will meet with local Shamans and Healers. Our evening will begin with a tour of local art studios, including a cocktail party with the artists at the historic Fabrica La Aurora.

We join with the best of nature for an overnight visit to Michoacán and the magical mountain where the Monarch Butterflies end their 2000 mile annual migration, this destination that has called them all the way from Canada. We will in a hotel near the biosphere and return to Casa Calderoni late Thursday night.

We will spend a relaxing day playing in one of the many thermal pool gardens surrounding San Miguel. The options include The Thermal Pools of Escondido Place and The Carcho Botanical Garden.

We will design this day together! There are so many wonderful events, constant festivals and extraordinary opportunities constantly revealing themselves in this dynamic city, we want to leave space for inspiration and impromptu adventure. Or maybe we want to return to a wonderful place. This day is for us to determine.

While we catch up on all our last minute items, remember that you want to leave at least 4 hours time for transportation and processing at the airport. Please book your flight home for afternoon departure so we can close our journey with a fun final morning.
