Hola. My name is Cesar Nistal Gonzalez
I am happy to provide safe, comfortable, reliable transportation in and around the city of San Miguel de Allende in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico.
San Miguel de Allende is situated in the central plains of Mexico, about 170 miles northwest of Mexico City. This beautiful colonial city is a major tourist center in Mexico. A Spanish outpost since the mid 1500’s, many of the buildings in the center of town date back to the 1600’s and 1700’s. San Miguel is also an important cultural center and arts community. People travel from all over the world to attend conferences and festivals here.
San Miguel de Allende, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located in the high desert (6,266 feet altitude) so the weather is always perfect. Average high temp is 74°F to 84°F. April and May are the hottest months of the year. The rainy season is May thru October.
I was born and raised in San Miguel and I know every part of the city and surrounding area. I lived for several years in the US and in Canada and my English is excellent. I provide English/Spanish translation services as well as being your driver and tour guide.

Having grown up in San Miguel, I know all the best spots to share with visitors. I can take you on a half-day or full-day tour of my lovely city and show you the historic churches, museums, art galleries, and other sights. I can recommend restaurants, shops, hotels, etc. It is a great way for first-time visitors to get the feel for the area.
There are many things to do and see outside of San Miguel de Allende. I can take you on a day trip to the nearby Sanctuary of Jesús Nazareno de Atotonilco which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. El Charco del Ingenio is an ecological reserve and botanical garden located right outside of town. There are several hot springs nearby where you can enjoy the warm mineral waters. There are fascinating archeological sites nearby including the Cañada de la Virgen which features Toltec pyramids used for ancient astronomy.
I can take you on a day trip to the neighboring city of Queretaro which is about an hour away. I can take you to visit the historic town of Delores Hildago which is about 45 minutes away and known for its exquisite ceramics.

I also can provide a special three-day vision quest mystical camping experience in the Real de Catorce desert with a sweat lodge (temazcal) and all camping gear included, meticulously maintained vehicles, and reliable, experienced, bilingual drivers. This area is well known for it’s spiritual powers and is the reason why mystics and many regular people visit this place from all over the world looking for enlightenment and inner peace.
As an English/Spanish translator, I frequently accompany visitors and local expats to doctor visits or government offices to help navigate the system.
I also am happy to provide local moving and relocation services if requested.
