Why Stay At La Puertecita
This 24-room escape is tucked away in a peaceful corner just outside Mexico's San Miguel de Allende.
There are few places in Mexico as charming as San Miguel de Allende—one reason why the colonial town is in the midst of a small hotel boom. But La Puertecita has always managed to stay under the radar. Located in a quiet wooded area just east of the city, the 24-room boutique hotel is filled with tiled fountains, angel statues, and spouting stone fish—its unique charms stand out when compared to most of the red-roofed properties nearby. Individually designed rooms come in four categories (the Luxury Rooms and Junior Suites can comfortably sleep four people) and are furnished with wrought-iron canopy beds, carved wooden chests, fireplaces, and bright vases. Guests spend their days by the outdoor pool or opt for painting classes in the on-site studio, and come evening, head into town to meander the cobblestoned streets and explore one of Mexico's most alluring villages.
Looking to stay connected? Wi-Fi is strongest in rooms closest to the hotel office.

Why We Love San Miguel de Allende
The colonial town of San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico's central highlands, is a popular spot for Americans—in fact, it's widely considered to be one of the friendliest and safest towns in the country. With a postcard-perfect skyline dotted with 17th- and 18th-century towers, churches, and mansions, the town of 150,000 has been a magnet for artists and writers since the 1940s.
