The best pizza by far in San Miguel de Allende. Why? Because the crust reminds me of Rome. Crispy on the outside and chewy in the inside. The toppings are very nice, like fig, serrano ham and goat cheese. In fact it's locate on the way to La Gruta and Escondido and it's right off the highway in a row of 3 or 4 other excellent restaruants. All of them are good!

This park is next to El Charco Ingenio. The difference is that it is open to the public for picnics, hikes, bike riding, off road motorcycles, horseback riding and dogs. It is free to enter. When it rains, there's a beautiful marsh full of egrets, ducks, blue herons and all kinds of color finches. When it's dry you can hike amongst the carrizo.

This place is amazingly organic. I have found freshly picked plump ruby red "flor de jamaica", which you can take home and boil and make hibiscus drinks or teas. They carry an excellent sourdough bread called, "OST" made in Queretaro and delivered only 1 a week. The cheeses are excellent! Located in Col. Guadalupe
