Where to Stay in San Miguel de Allende

Are you coming to the 2018 Family Adventure Summit in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico? Aren’t sure where to stay, or what areas would be best? We are here to help!

Real de Minas

The 2018 Family Adventure Summit will be held at the beautiful hotel and conference center, Real de Minas. We highly encourage you to stay at the hotel during the dates of the conference, October 30th to November 2nd (plus one day before or after!) Why do we recommend this? With kids, it is so convenient to have a room at the hotel. The conference will be pretty full-on, and having the option to retreat to a quiet spot during breaks may just save you from experiencing a tantrum (or having one yourself, ha!) Older kids will be able to stay in their room while the conference is in full swing if they need a bit of downtime, or need extra time to sleep in. Staying at the hotel will also give you more options for socializing with other traveling families in the mornings and the evenings as there are so many beautiful spots to chill out with friends

Real de Minas is one of the nicest hotels in San Miguel de Allende. It’s in a fantastic location, just across the street from the organic market and dozens of shops and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. It’s also a quick walk to the town cemetery which will be full of flowers and music on the Day of the Dead. This hotel has ample indoor and outdoor meeting space for our group, along with a large family-friendly pool and playground.

Each room at Real de Minas comes with free wifi, a private balcony, and access to the pool.

We have negotiated a fantastic group rate. Don’t wait to book as Real de Minas will likely sell out for this popular time of year!

Airbnb or VBRO

Many of our attendees are opting to stay in San Miguel for an extended period of time and are looking at renting homes or apartments. We are so excited about the community that will be formed with all of you amazing family travelers! The conference is in the neighborhood of San Antonio, so if you can find something in that neighborhood, you will have a short walk to the conference center. If you do not yet have an Airbnb account, use this link when you sign up and you’ll get a $26 travel credit!

If you find a place in a different neighborhood, no worries! San Miguel is a very walkable city unless you are on the outskirts. Taxis within the town will cost 50 pesos per ride and Ubers will cost a bit less.

Tips for booking a home or apartment:

  • Always ask for a discount, especially if you are staying for a month or more! The worse they can stay is no, and you may be able to save hundreds of dollars! (I saved about $500 USD on a monthly rental in San Miguel in 2017, simply by asking for a lower rate!)
  • If you are having trouble finding a place (they are booking up fast!) try searching for fewer people. For instance, I might search for two adults and then contact the homeowners directly saying that we have two children but they are fine sharing a bed, sleeping on a couch, or using an air mattress. This may open up a lot of new listings for you.
  • If you are staying for an extended period, make sure to ask about things that are important to you. For me, I always ask about the wifi, even asking if they can tell me what the up/down speeds are. I also always make a point to ask about the kitchen. Is the kitchen well equipped for cooking? Are there enough dishes for your family? etc.
