San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
In 2013, Conde Naste rated San Miguel de Allende the #1 city in the world!
Conde Naste Traveler wrote,
San Miguel de Allende nabbed the No. 1 spot thanks to its 'great atmosphere, excellent restaurants, culture and ambiance galore.' The 'lack of street lights and billboard's makes the region romantically and historically beautiful, and the city itself offers a 'traditional feeling of a small town in the heart of Mexico'.... An amazing place to be.
