Join us as we take a day trip from our home town of San Miguel de Allende to CERRO DEL CUBILETE and the CRISTO REY. This gigantic statue of Christ is located on top of a 600-foot-tall hill, just a short 2-hour drive from San Miguel and just a few minutes from the Guanajuato Airport (GTO) and the cities of Guanajuato and Leon. After visiting the shrine, we eat some delicious Mexican street food.
There are so many fun things to do in and around San Miguel de Allende! For some ideas visit our sightseeing page.

On our recent visit to the nearby city of Guanajuato, our friend, Miguel, who also happens to be one of the best guides around, introduced us to this gem.
This sandwich is a type of torta locally known as a "guacamaya", and it is blissfully delicious. It consists of avocado, a hard boiled egg, and an insane amount of pork rinds all topped with a spicy pico de gallo salsa.
It is the best 25 pesos one could ever spend. That's $1.25 at today's exchange rate!
If you're in Guanajuato, be sure to visit this vendor located just down the street from the "callejon del beso"
