If you're wondering just how far we are to San Miguel de Allende's town square and main church, the "Jardín" and "Parroquia", as they are locally called, scroll down to see a google map with walking directions from Antigua Capilla Bed & Breakfast to the corner of the Jardín.
This route can take under 10 minutes if you're from New York City or our home town of San Francisco, but beware of a phenomenon known as "Mexican time". You will slow down to absorb the surroundings, chat with complete strangers, people watch, eat something from a food stand, walk through an open gate just to see what's on the other side, step into a church or 10 to marvel at the baroque architecture, and on and on. If you are afflicted, you might not make it to the Jardín until...mañana!
Here are a few points of interests along the route:
A great alternative to walking are the very inexpensive, safe and plentiful taxis. Flag one down anywhere in San Miguel or call them to pick you up at the B&B, and you’ll be taken to your destination in no time. Current taxi rates are $40 pesos for a flagged taxi and $50 pesos for a called taxi.
