If you plan on attending the wedding events, we encourage you to book your flights sooner rather than later. There are two airports that service the San Miguel area: Leon (BJX) and Queretaro (QRO). Both airports are a little over one hour away from San Miguel and are a safe drive. Travel can also be booked into Mexico City (MEX) which is about a three-hour drive away.
(BJX) Del Bajio Airport, Leon/Guanajuato
The Leon airport is about and hour and fifteen minutes from San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. It is by far the most used for people traveling to San Miguel. However, people flying from the northern US or Canada often find cheaper fares flying into Mexico City. (QRO) Queretaro Airport, MX
The Queretaro airport is about an hour away from San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. There are several flights a day on various airlines with very good connections from Dallas and Houston.
Transportation to San Miguel de Allende
We recommend hiring a driver to pick you up and return you the airport. If you plan on doing some exploring outside of San Miguel de Allende, you might want a car. Otherwise, walking and using taxis is the most efficient means of getting around in SMA where parking can be challenging. If you do rent a car, be sure to have Pesos before you leave the airport as you'll need them to pay tolls on the way.
Most major rental car companies are on the grounds of the each airport.
There are also taxis, group shuttles, and private shuttles available.
We have two recommendations for drivers listed below.
As soon as you have your flights booked, please contact one of the two companies below to book your ride for arrival AND departure.
