Summer in San Miguel de Allende

Published Date Author: , June 23rd, 2013

Summer in San Miguel de Allende is our slow time of year.  I’m not sure why.  It’s a bit warmer than our winter, but not all that much.  The temperatures usually range between the mid-80’s to mid-90’s with an occasional burst of rain which will clean the streets and please the plants.  We usually do not have days that are completely overcast.  The sun is always close at hand.

I like to take advantage of a slower time here in the B & B to do more entertaining of friends, include my guests if they are not too busy exploring,  complete projects that are difficult to do with guests here and just enjoy the town in a quieter mode.

During the week, the town is much more tranquil this time of year, but beginning Friday the Mexican tourists will begin to arrive.  Lots of eye candy.  It is amazing how some of the girls can navigate our cobble stone streets in 6″ wedge spikes and tight, tight skirts. We have become a big wedding destination and a weekend get-away for the Mexican tourists from Mexico City and nearby towns.  The weddings are always on Saturdays.  After the ceremony there will usually be a foot parade from the church to the party central.  This will include a burro, all tarted up with paper flowers and a keg of tequila which will be dispensed to the wedding party as they head for the after wedding fiesta.  They are given a small cup, a really small cup,  which they hang around their neck on a string and have refilled, a lot.  There can also be mojigangas included in the parade.  These are larger than life size or double life size paper mache figures with someone inside the hollow structure.  They dance along the streets with the crowd.

If we don’t have wedding celebrations, we have religious and National celebrations.  Sometimes we are having all of these at once. Any excuse will do.  So, all of you thinking of marriage, come on down and do it in this beautiful colonial town.
