Average high temperatures fluctuate between the low 70s and 80s, making this temperate season very pleasant for those seeking a reprieve from the colder winter weather of home. Better yet, this is San Miguel's dry season, though temperatures do tend to slide into the 40s at night, so be sure to pack accordingly. If you're traveling around Christmas or Easter, you may face slightly higher hotel rates. Consider avoiding those holiday times when possible, or reserve your accommodations several months in advance of your trip.
Summer months (especially July and August) in San Miguel de Allende tend to see the most rainfall, with the city experiencing an average of 2½ inches of precipitation per month. But, if you don't mind the showers, you'll find nighttime temperatures are warmer during the summer, and bars and restaurants stay open later as a result. Plus, you can often save a bit of money during this season as expensive hotel rates are typically tied to peak tourism times — particularly the weeks surrounding Christmas and Easter. Regardless, plan to book your accommodations at least several months in advance of your getaway.
