San Miguel practical and useful information

Means of transportation
By plane : The International airport "El Bajío" (BJX) is located 110 km (68miles) from San Miguel west of the city of Guanajuato on the road to Silao. It is common to the cities of Guanajuato, León and San Miguel de Allende. There are several daily flights from Mexico City : Aeromexico - 6 daily flights - (477) 441 1420/1421/1422/1402, and to the other Mexican airports via the capital of the country.

It is linked to several American airports such as Dallas, Houston, Miami, New-York and Los Angeles with the company Aéromexico and the American companies such as Continental, American Airlines and Delta Airlines have several direct flights.

Craftman in San Miguel The recent opening of the international airport of Querétaro (QRO), located only 70 km (44 miles) away, allows choices between this airport and BJX. Volaris offers a few flights a week - Querétaro/Mexico City. Continental operates a direct flight to Houston with connections through the USA. Aeromexico operates from QRO to Mexico City and all of Mexico. Aeromexico offers a direct flight to Los Angeles.
In our opinion, unless you come from the U.S.A, it is better to drive or take a bus from Mexico City, for the beauty of the landscape as well as for your purse.
