For anyone looking to visit Mexico but is a bit unnerved by the bad press Mexico gets these days, they should go to San Miguel de Allende in the state of Guanajuato. Located 274 km form Mexico city, it’s as western as it gets with its large population of foreign retirees, artists and writers, most of whom come from the big country to the north. It’s a beautiful spot and has lots of festivals. These dancers were part of the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) festival. Couldn’t resist the angle!
