Excursion Day

Let's Explore San Miguel Together!

Excursion Day

During the afternoon of October 31, we’ve arranged several excursions around San Miguel de Allende to give you a chance to explore the town and its’ surroundings with your new Family Adventure friends! Many of these excursions are tours we’ve arranged with local providers to offer you a discount or easier transportation. Other excursions will be self-directed, and simply an opportunity to explore a place together at your own pace.

Important: Some tours have a minimum and maximum number of participants, so it is important that you register for one of these excursions at least one week before the event (by Oct 21), so the tour companies can properly prepare. If minimum numbers are not met by Oct 21, some paid excursions may be canceled.

Read about the excursions below, then fill out the form to choose which one your family is committing to participate in. If you choose a tour with a cost, payment will be due on Oct 31, paid to a representative from the respective tour company.

Also – don’t forget to come back to Real de Minas by 7pm for our fun family Halloween Dance and Costume Party!
