Travel to San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende (SMA) is serviced by three airports: León (BJX), Querétaro (QRO), and Mexico City International (MEX). We recommend that all guests fly into Leon International Airport (BJX), as it is closest to San Miguel de Allende. However, Mexico City (MEX) will most likely have a greater variety of international flights and lower prices. Both León and Querétaro are an hour away, while Mexico City is about a three-hour drive from SMA.
