San Diego Horticultural Society heads south of the border next February for an exploration of Mexico’s delightful colonial cities. The charming village of San Miguel de Allende is a World Heritage Site that manages to be both quaint and cosmopolitan at the same time. Once an important stop on the Silver Route between Zacatecas and Mexico City, its historic center is filled with well-preserved buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries. With its narrow cobblestone streets, leafy courtyards, fine architectural details, and sumptuous interiors, San Miguel de Allende is arguably the prettiest town in Mexico. From our base in San Miguel de Allende, we’ll also explore the nearby historic colonial city of Dolores Hidalgo, where we can shop for Talavera pottery. The itinerary includes exclusive private garden and gallery visits. We’ll enjoy the finest regional cuisine at our included lunches and dinners as well as a fun cooking class. Mark your calendars for this popular trip, February 15-21, 2018. Reservations will open soon and the trip is sure to sell out early. SDHS sponsor Sterling Tours will operate the tour and Cheryl and Robert Nichols will escort. Jim Bishop and Scott Borden will join the tour as paying guests.
