One of the easiest and most enjoyable outings from San Miguel is to spend a good part of the day at one of the local hot springs, where the warm thermal waters are ideal for soaking your bones. There are numerous hotels and mini-resorts with geothermal pools all around the area, but the best and easiest to reach are clustered around ten minutes’ drive northwest of town on the road to Dolores Hidalgo. The Santuario de Jesús Nazareno  de Atotonilco and enigmatic Cañada de la Virgen are equally enticing cultural attractions, while the intriguing half-deserted settlement of Mineral de Pozos and historic towns of Dolores Hidalgo and San José Iturbide make easy and absorbing excursions.
