Property description

Casa de Aparicio is located in Centro, the historic, vibrant and magical city center of San Miguel de Allende. Casa de Aparicio offers a tranquil and comfortable respite with its terraced patios, private spaces and tasteful accommodations.

This flower-filled terraced property has 5 Private Guest Casitas and 1 Guestroom. Each Casita is fully outfitted with all the comforts of (stove top, refrigerator, microwave); wonderfully comfortable bed with soft linens and plush pillows; flat-screen Cable TVs, WIFI, free local and international calls, flower-filled patios, and a roof-top terrace with panoramic views.

As you walk out the front door, you are surrounded by cobblestone streets with 16th and 17th century architecture. Enjoy strolling from the front door to the best of shopping and sight seeing, colorful markets, restaurants/cafes, entertainment and art galleries. The El Jardin is only 5 minutes away.

There is so much to enjoy about San Miguel. This preserved World Heritage UNESCO destination has something for everyone! Enjoy creative classes in art, writing, jewelry making, theater, Spanish, and more. Or maybe a guided horse ride or hot air balloon ride is more for you. But, perhaps the best activity, by far, is sitting on a park bench in the El Jardin, with an ice cream in hand, watching all the people walk by and all the festivities go on.

At 6200 elevation, you'll enjoy cool mornings, warmer afternoons, and delightful evenings. The perpetual spring-like weather is wonderful!

International flights arrive at Bajio International (BJX) Airport near Leon, Queretaro Airport (QTO) (90 minute ride) and also at Mexico City (3.5 bus ride), making San Miguel easily accessible to all. Many of our guests use BajioGo Shuttle Service ( Ask for the discount for Casa de Aparicio.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I came from New Jersey where I was a hospice social worker and psychotherapist. Like so many before me, and since, I fell in love with San Miguel. From the moment I arrived I felt the warmth of the Mexican people and ex-pats making San Miguel their home. After renting for a while I decided that this was where I wanted to be. I love meeting new people and this town is full of them! I meet even more by having guests staying with me at Casa de Aparicio.

Why the Owner Chose Centro:
The joy that most people feel being in San Miguel was a major drawing point. When I first arrived by bus from Mexico City to do an intensive language course while staying with a Mexican family I experienced such a feeling of joy on the bus. I realized that there was no other place I'd rather be at that moment. (I was in the front seat so that may have had something to do with it). My positive feelings continued each of the 3 times I revisited. Then I decided to take the plunge and buy this property.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This question is very easy. No where else could I meet such a diverse and interesting group of people. And they are my guests!!!!! I can't recall anyone who was disagreeable. That is saying a lot after 6 years. The town is chock full of people who have travelled the world and as a result are quite stimulating to converse with. In addition to my guests this is the easiest place to meet others. Just go to the jardin, sit on a bench and you will acquire instant friendship. Where else can you do that?
