On to the picturesque town of San Miguel Allende with its spectacular mountain scenery. After lunch in town, depart for Guanajuato for overnight.


Mass this morning will be at the Church of San Cayetano followed by city tour of the most popular sights in Guanajuato – the University, Teatro Juarez, the local market, the underground streets and the quaintness of this colonial city.
