 Sanmiguel   Pozos

Less than 45 minutes from San Miguel is the rugged town of Pozos, officially known as Pozos de Mineral. For several centuries, Pozos produced an assortment of minerals, from silver to mercury, and the town, now mostly in ruins, has the mines to show for it.

Recently, newcomers have begun renovating crumbled buildings, turning them into hotels, restaurants and art galleries.  Spend the day walking the cobblestoned streets, exploring the mines and eating lunch in a shady courtyard of one of four delightful restaurants.  

 
 Botgarden   Monarch Butterflies

The most beautiful and plentiful of the many visitors that come to Central Mexico in the winter is the glorious Monarch butterfly. In the mountains of the state of Michoacan, three to four hours south of San Miguel, are two butterfly sanctuaries open to the public. Hundreds of millions of Monarchs spend the winter clinging together in clumps that look like large growths of Spanish moss dripping from fir-tree branches. 

The best time for viewing the Monarchs is in February and early March.
