We are thrilled to announce that after a three-year hiatus, our popular March Magic tour will be held in San Miguel de Allende March 28 – April 3, 2023.
San Miguel de Allende has been named, for the sixth time, the “Best Small City in the World” by Condé Nast Traveler magazine. March Magic tour participants will experience the heart of Mexico as an insider, feasting on the rich sights, sounds, and traditions of San Miguel de Allende while contributing to the well-being of children in San Miguel’s poorest communities.
Attendees of this exclusive excursion, limited to 20 participants, will enjoy the culture, history, music, and incredible food of this enchanting colonial gem, designated a World Heritage of Humanity site by UNESCO.
This unforgettable experience will include:
Lodging at Casa San Jose, a beautifully restored 18th century hacienda in the heart of the San Miguel de Allende historic district, or in nearby private homes. Your hosts are local residents and will provide any assistance required.
In addition to lodging provided March 28 through April 3, the tour includes
- Cultural experiences, entertainment, and phenomenal food in the city and the countryside.
- Breakfast every morning. Lunch, dinner, or cocktail parties every day in private homes and other venues.
- A visit to the rural school and the children you are helping support through your participation in this travel experience.
- Special events and tours.
- Transportation to all scheduled activities.
- Ground transportation to and from Querétaro (QRO) and León (BJX) airports. (Transportation to and from Mexico City International airport can be arranged for an additional cost.)
We recommend arriving in time for the Welcome Cocktail Party on March 28, and staying through the Farewell Party on April 3.
Some of the special events we have planned:
A visit to Dolores Hidalgo, the birthplace of Mexican independence in the 1800s, with tour and lunch at Hacienda de Trancas. The Hacienda, built in 1567, is 40,000 square feet and is one of the oldest buildings in North America. We will explore the rooms and grounds that have maintained their original designs. There are also tropical gardens, orchards, a chapel, and riding stables.
The city is also well known for its Talavera pottery, which has been produced there since the 18th century. We will visit the factory that makes the famous Talavera catrinas, where you can shop for pottery, including their meticulously handmade Day of the Dead figures that embody all the colorful charm of Mexico.
Tour and lunch at Hacienda de Chichimequillas, a World Heritage Site founded by the Carmelite monks in the 17th century, with captivating architecture, gardens, and chapel.
Fabulous food at our favorite restaurants in San Miguel’s historic district and in beautiful private homes with live entertainment.
Historic guided walking tour through San Miguel’s glorious past, conducted by Patronato Pro Nino, non-profit organization that provides medical and dental care to needy children.
El Pavo Real Vineyard where we will enjoy an afternoon of food and wine pairing as peacocks stroll the gorgeous gardens, in the countryside of San Miguel with a view of the Picacho Mountains.
Tour of Feed the Hungry Headquarters to see our operation in action, enjoy lunch prepared by our chefs from menus featured in our school lunch program, and a visit to a rural school to meet the children who benefit from your patronage.
