A Tasty New Reason to Visit San Miguel de Allende

Rooftop dining at Rosewood San Miguel de Allende

This July, the first-ever Market of Arts & Gastronomy (MAG) festival debuts in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. The four-day event boasts a thoughtfully curated mix of programming that features high-profile Mexican chefs, artists, wineries, craft cocktails, and of course, amazing meals! If you've been looking for an excuse to visit the gorgeous town (and UNESCO World Heritage site) of San Miguel de Allende, the MAG festival looks like the perfect enticement. Ticket prices range from $50-$150; a great value.

MAG festival events are mainly centered at the Hotel Matilda and Rosewood San Miguel de Allende, so staying at either of these hotels will put you right in the thick of things. Nicely Travel's pick would be the Rosewood San Miguel de Allende: it has a prime location, pretty architecture, and a luxurious spa that integrates Mexican healing traditions with indigenous ingredients. That said, true spa aficionados will want to check out the spa at Hotel Matilda as well! It's been ranked by Travel+Leisure as one of the best three spas in North America, and its unique Apothecary Concierge service invites you to truly personalize your spa experience by making your own skin care products.
