San Miguel de Allende sits at an altitude of 6,435 feet above sea level. Located in Central Mexico, it is roughly three hours away from Mexico City. Guests may fly to Mexico City, Querétaro Airport or the Guanajuato-León Airport. Queretaro Airport has direct flights from Houston through United and Aeromar. It is an hour-drive away. Guanajuato-León Airport has direct flights from Dallas, Los Angeles, Houston, San Jose and Oakland (California), and Mexico City, and is served by American Airlines, United and Aeromexico. It is a scenic one-and-a-half-hour drive away.  Continue reading Getting to San Miguel de Allende

I found a few great things, like this Ear Warmers with built in speakers, so you can ski or snowboard at your own rhythm and tunes.  (regular price USD 30. Century 21 discounted price USD 14). Got a few FlashDry T-Shirts from The North Face (USD 50 each) to stay dry and warm while out. And this AMAZING Wind Stopper performance running pants that you can wear out or under your jeans (USD 140). Finally two pairs of globes, both with iPhone Touch Screen system, so I can snap photos and videos even at the most adverse weather conditions.
