Tucked away in the Central Mexican state of Guanajuato, you’ll find something a bit out of the ordinary: The serene oasis of Valle de los Senderos (“Valley of the Trails”), a site poised to become your new favorite getaway.
This 125-hectare (308 acres) refuge, located three kilometers from the popular tourist town of San Miguel de Allende, is a pioneer in environmental preservation. A sustainable residential and tourism area, the area was the premier “green” resort area in Latin America, long before such a concept was popular.
An Experience in Relaxation
When you’re there, you may not realize it, but the “beach” that makes Valle de los Senderos famous is artificially made, filled by the nearby hot springs, which supplies an endless source of clean, crystal-clear water for beach lovers to enjoy. The thematic water garden and the huge thermal jacuzzi at La Gruta Spa are other ways to bask in the freshness of this area, including unlimited fun for children in a special area developed just for them.
But you’re certainly not limited to swimming or lying on the beach when you’re at Senderos. You can spend some time paddle-boarding, hot-air ballooning, or playing croquet. Or, for a slower pace, relax the body and the mind with yoga classes.
A Palate’s Delight
In between leisure activities at the beach, you can re-fuel with just about anything your stomach desires. Bastardo Restaurante and Beer Garden is a fine choice for delectably-prepared meat and locally-grown vegetable dishes, drinks, and deserts. Feast on a classic gourmet dinner at Barrica de Fuego, or, for something different, chow down at one of the several pizzerias, such as Pizzaguy—the area’s best “New York Pizza.” As an added treat before or after dinner, you can sample wine at the local vineyard, which is in production year-round.
An Atmosphere You’ll Relish
No matter how you spend your time at Senderos, you’ll love its theme: A celebration of nature. For only $500 pesos a day, you’ll have unlimited access to all its features. And your stay at the Orchid House
