Raise your glass and toast to flavorful adventures ahead with this special DreamTrip in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico! Get ready to immerse yourself in a vibrant food culture that’s increasingly important on the world stage with an afternoon outing that’s part sightseeing tour, part foodie adventure — and all delicious. You'll taste regional variations of the taco — at least 3 different kinds — as you stroll the ancient streets of San Miguel’s old town district. You’re sure to marvel at the impressive colonial-era architecture. Along the way, you’ll also learn how to make classic cocktails with tequila, Mexico’s enduring favorite spirit.
Your tantalizing treats include tacos de panceta paired with a refreshing tamarind margarita and the city’s best tacos al pastor. The best local fish tacos, meanwhile, are served alongside a paloma cocktail you make yourself! Another stop is all about mezcal — an agave-based liquor, like tequila — and tlayuda. This popular street food is sometimes called “Mexican pizza” and may be served flat or folded in half. You’ll also experience something truly unique when you bite into quesadillas made with huitlacoche, a delicacy akin to truffles — this one’s served alongside a hibiscus margarita. Wrap up your afternoon with a glass of tequila at a traditional cantina. Culinary journeys have never been this much fun!
Back at Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada, you’ll experience the ultimate in luxurious comfort and relaxation. This boutique hotel and cooking school caters to the world's most discriminating travelers, offering world-class service, premium amenities and an inspiring setting in the hills of central Mexico. The rooms and suites celebrate the spirit of San Miguel, characterized by furnishings, art, antiques and fabrics that are unique to each room and add a touch of charm. No wonder this incredible property is part of Virtuoso, the global luxury network of leisure travel advisors.
