We rented Walt's place for the whole month and found everything super comfortable and easy - I can't imagine Casa Francisco ever getting less than a 5 star rating, which is honestly how I picked it in the first place. That, and the fact that...More

About the neighbourhood
The neighborhood is within the perimeter of the historic Centro area of San Miguel and among houses inhabited by wonderful full-time residents, about 25% of which are non-native expats.

Buses DO NOT travel on our street, which is a benefit in terms of lower noise levels. The house does front the street, so a bit of car traffic could be heard in the late evening, but I have had very few complaints about it from guests.
Getting around
Taxis to get around town are quite inexpensive (about MN40/trip within the town center). Taxis could also be hired for short excursions outside of town. Shuttles to/from the airport or to other cities could be contracted at reasonable prices with Bajio Go (check Google for website link, from which reservations could be made).
