Villas Xichu

Directions & Location

On Foot

Villas Xichu is located in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, on a hill top called Valle del Maiz (which means “the corn valley”). You can walk to the Jardin (downtown in the main square) in a matter of 20 minutes, strolling down the Chorro, through the Juarez Park while admiring historical buildings. It is an experience all its own!

By Plane

The closest airports to San Miguel are in Léon (BJX, about 70 miles away) and Queretaro (QRO, about 45 miles away). Arriving at either of these airports will make your final journey a relatively inexpensive (between US$30 and US$60) hour shuttle or cab ride. Your flight may be less expensive if you go through Mexico City (MEX), and connect to a flight to Leon or Queretaro. You may ride an airport bus from Mexico City to Leon and then catch a local bus to San Miguel. However, it's a 4-5 hour trip. Another option is a bus from MEX airport to Queretaro and on to San Miguel.

Shuttle Bus

We can also arrange for your pick-up and departure trips from Queretaro, Leon or Mexico City airport with bilingual drivers (Queretaro being nearest and Mexico City farthest).


Many others chose to drive to Mexico, generally crossing the border at or near Laredo or McAllen, Texas. San Miguel de Allende is a pleasant drive of about nine hours from the border, with good toll roads most all the way. Some do it in one long day, others break the trip overnight in Matahuala, Saltillo or San Luis Potosí.
