Looking For A Winter Rv Spot In San MIguel de Allende?

I'm sure the owner of La Siesta in SMA is laughing all the way to the bank since he sold his hotel and rv park.  However, he has left some snowbird rvers on the street this winter.

I posted on the rv.net that we were looking for a place for a couple of weeks in december and Les, MexicoKid, recommended I join a Yahoo group for SMA.  I did and have received a ton of emails from people offering solutions.  Many have land or a spot available and are willing to rent this winter.  Most of the places offer no services but there are a lot of self-contained rvers out there willing to live on solar and battery for a couple of weeks so that they can enjoy all that SMA offers.

We will be stopping by San Miguel de Allende next week to check out the options we have received and I will report in hopes that there are people interested in coming down this year.  Most of the places are between town and Atotonilco, about 15 minutes away.  Bus service from there is available so this could work out.

More on this later.  Hacienda Contreras has company, a family has come to rent a unit and stay for a couple of days.   They are great people and we had quite a fun happy hour last night with warm fire in the chimney.


  1. Good for you for pushing for a solution to SMA! Can you also check out dumping situations? We can go about 10 days but then need to dump!

  2. Yes, SMA needs a solution for rigs like ours, a 27' fifth wheel!
    With or without services. Thanks for scoping it out.
