How to get here and where to stay
AIR TRAVEL: San Miguel is accessible from two airports: Leon (BJX) and Queretaro (QRO), both of which are approximately an hour and a half from San Miguel. To get to and from either airport, the shuttle service, Bajiogo, is excellent. Their website, bajiogoshuttle.com, allows you to book online. You will need your flight number, time of arrival, and the address of where you are staying. When you arrive at the airport, after going through customs, a driver will meet you near the doors with a sign with your name on it. You can pay online or the driver will accept U.S. dollars or pesos. The fee is approximately $26.00 plus a tip for the driver. Private shuttles are also available. The shuttle will deliver you to your door.
