How Late Does the Bus Run from Q to SMA?

by wanderlustig

I will be traveling to San Miguel de Allende in August. I'm flying in to Mexico City and taking the bus. I've already learned a lot about this process by reading the answers to others' postings. I still have a couple of questions: (1) I will arrive in Queretaro between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. Are there still buses running at that hour to SMA? (2) I will be returning to Mexico City via bus on a Sunday. Do buses run as frequently on Sundays as they do on weekdays?

maybe you missed this great website about the various buslines, where their routes are, so you can look up times: http://www.differentworld.com/mexico/buses.htm

the schedules are not available right now for August, so I just looked at June and there appears to be evening buses at 19:20 and 21:15 on the day I looked.

so you can use it to look as your date gets closer

The last bus to SMA from Queretaro is at about 10 30P.

Buses from SMA to Mexico City are frequent every day.

Be mindful that if you want to go to the airport from SMA you will have to go to Queretaro, then find a ticket to the airport. Buses from SMA to Mexico stop at the terminal norte in MEX, from where it is a 20.US cab ride to the airport You can take the metro from norte to the airport for about a quarter, but it would entail quite a bit of walking.

Also for some reason if you are late a cab ride from Queretaro all the way to SMA is only about 35 US.

Buen Viaje!

I hope you have discovered the express buses that go directly from the Airport to Queretaro. They save you the hassle of going to the North Terminal.

Take the bus from the airport terminal (there are now 2 terminals at MEX- the bus to QTO stops at both) that goes directly to the QTO bus station. You will have to change sides at this large facility from first class to a more local section- the signage makes this easy enough. 2 bus companies, Flecha Amarilla and Herradura run local frequent busses to SMA. They will make many stops, but you will be in SMA in about an hour and ten minutes, maybe less.

Considering your 8-9 arrival time in QTO, you wont have any problems getting a bus to SMA, and again if you are unfortunate and late you can take a taxi to SMA for 35. I might even suggest taking a taxi no matter what time you arrive, but this is from someone who, after a long day of arriving at MEX and bussing to QTO like you are going to do, had to stand in the aisle of a jam-packed 2nd class bus all the way to SMA. You wont have this problem at 8 or 9 pm.

When you get your ticket at the airport for QTO, ask them about a return schedule on Sunday. The busses between SMA and QTO are frequent on Sundays.

It is best to avoid MEX norte unless you are up for an adventure or if it works out that you just have to.

Just a side note: if you're coming back from SMA on Sunday the buses will probably run even more frequently because it's when people come back from their weekends out of town..... but that means that the buses will also be more crowded so make sure you get to the bus station with a good anticipation because you may have to wait for a 2nd bus if the next available one is already full. Just so you keep it in mind.... or, if you come back early (ie. before 1 PM or so) you shouldn't have a problem with available seats. Good luck.

Travel Tips for San Miguel de Allende

Ghost town

by kathleenmeans

It isn't touristy yet but it will be soon. Pozos is an old mining town. Because there is no regular bus service, you might need to hire a driver. Bring a flashlight and you can actually go into the mines. The ruins are from the 19th century but seem older in many ways. There are no signs so you might want to get a guide.

Nice-to-see: Parque Juarez

by gdilieto

Not a site worth remembering itself, San Miguel's park, Parque Juarez, few blocks off the Main Square right behind the Paroquia, is a pleasant place for some relax and some local-people watching. A gathering place for locals, especially seniors and youngsters. There is also a playground for kids.

I live here most of the year and would be happy to answer any question you pose, but I'm not guaranteeing I'll know the answer. This is a beautiful spot on our "big blue marble". I'll be uploading pics soon. Claire

San Miguel de Allende...

by Ronald_T

"UNDER RE-CONSTRUCTION..."

San Miguel de Allende in the State of Guanajuato. In 1542, Friar Juan de San Miguel founded the community of San Miguel el Grande in a area inhabited by Guamare and Purepechas nomadic tribes. The community grew rapidly as it was on the mining route between Guanajuato, Zacatecas and San Luis Potosi. San Miguel el Grande was an important town between Dolores Hidalgo and Queretaro during the start of the Mexican War of Independence. In 1826, the name of the city went changed to San Miguel de Allende, hero of the War of Independence. San Miguel is a cosmopolitan and picturesque colonial city of international fame. With the beauty of its architecture and its tranquil atmosphere, the city has become one of Mexico’s most important tourist and cultural centres. San Miguel draws both national and international artists and writers who, charmed by its unique ambiance, have established permanent residences here. From a vantage point above the city, San Miguel resembles a Christmas nativity scene where at night hundreds of twinkling lights cast shadows on the narrow cobblestone streets, elegant mansions and churches, all of wish have been instrumental in the designation of San Miguel as a Mexican National Monument.
Nowadays, San Miguel offers an excellent variety of cultural events such as the International Chamber Music Festival and the National Brass and Wool Fair, to name a few. Numerous art exhibitions are also held throughout the year. Located outside of San Miguel there are thermal hot springs and spas for those who want to relax and unwind. The warmth and friendliness of the people and the awe inspiring colonial architecture have enveloped many who are spellbound forever by this city of unparalleled charm....
