When visiting San Miguel de Allende from the US or most any other country, the best way to exchange money and to get pesos is by simply withdrawing them directly from your bank account at an ATM.

If you're wondering just how far we are to San Miguel de Allende's town square and main church, the "Jardín" and "Parroquia", as they are locally called, scroll down to see a google map with walking directions from Antigua Capilla Bed & Breakfast to the corner of the Jardín.
This route can take under 10 minutes if you're from New York City or our home town of San Francisco, but beware of a phenomenon known as "Mexican time". You will slow down to absorb the surroundings, chat with complete strangers, people watch, eat something from a food stand, walk through an open gate just to see what's on the other side, step into a church or 10 to marvel at the baroque architecture, and on and on. If you are afflicted, you might not make it to the Jardín until...mañana!
Here are a few points of interests along the route:
A great alternative to walking are the very inexpensive, safe and plentiful taxis. Flag one down anywhere in San Miguel or call them to pick you up at the B&B, and you’ll be taken to your destination in no time. Current taxi rates are $40 pesos for a flagged taxi and $50 pesos for a called taxi.
