Indigenous Christmas Celebrations

Spend Christmas morning in a rare opportunity exploring a local village’s holiday celebrations of dancing and music plus:

  • The Silver Route where it remains much like in the 1600s
  • A cloistered monastery enjoying the art, views and vibes.  Feel free to bring chocolate covered Oreos as certain friars adore them and the sugar rush makes them a bit chatty for cloistered lads.
  • Atotonilco where the Revolution from Spain began and where the murals draw over 5,000 visitors every week.
  • The oldest functioning dam and enjoy a brief walk in the countryside laden with ancient architecture!
  • The chapel where San Miguel started.  Here you’ll enjoy the wide array of indigenous symbolism that including a boot wearing angels that appear to be homage to Nancy Sinatra but actually have a deeper meaning.

The cost is 1500 pesos per person, or 75 USD.  We leave at 9AM and are back around 1:30, in time for lunch.

Tours are led by Joseph Toone, author of the best-selling Christmas book in the series San Miguel de Allende’s Secrets and our top ranked private tour guide.  Toone is also the creator of the San Miguel de Allende Secrets YouTube channel, Events Page and other social media accounts.
