An amazing and huge area with a great variety of cactus. Part of it has signals and paths to move around; there is an old dam which is now used by migrating and local birds. There is another wilder area, great views, beautiful birds and these magnificent plants: cactus of all kinds. A beautiful green area in the magnificent town of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato.
San Miguel de Allende is a historic small city in the heart of Mexico, about 3 hours by car north of the capital. It's a great place to use as a base for exploring old colonial cities such as Guanajuato. It is also a wonderful place for artists and for people who want to take Spanish courses. There are quite a few Europeans who live here full or part-time and a lot more Americans, but it still retains the feel of Mexican city. Near to the town are a group of swimming pools fed by hot springs. Look it up on the internet and you'll see why so many people come here to visit and end up living here - like me!
San Miguel de Allende, State of Guanajuato
A superb collection of art all based on Don Quixote ranging from modern sculptures to classic paintings. In my nine month gap year it was one of my top five highlights, it really is that good.
Artists with work on display include Picasso and Dali.

A great restaurant and bar right in the middle of Jardin de la Union. You can drink and eat outside and enjoy the people watching. The Jardin is beautiful and you also get a view of the incredible Teatro Juarez, whose front steps are always full of people and street performers.
As well as nearby music from mariachis, the restaurant often puts up its big screen TV so you can enjoy the big football games. Something for everyone!
