A great place for a hiking Mar 21, 2014
When you are travelling to San Miguel de Allende don't miss Botanical Garden (El Charco del Ingenio). It is easy to get there: just take a taxi. If you like nature you can spend there a whole day. Bring a hat, sunscreen, comfortable shoes and some water, enjoy the great food at the snack bar there. Takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to complete the loop. Тot easy to find a taxi back so, tell your taxi driver come back in 2 hours if you are not planning to spend more time there. Also the gift shop attendant can call a cab to pick you up.

There is an admission charge, 40 pesos per person.

Plants and wildlife are distributed in three zones: the dry chaparral the canyon and the wetlands which include artificial islands in the reservoir. You have a great view of the dam, manmade islands and the deep canyon.

Walk is self guided and easy. The plants are labeled well.

It's great place for bird watching. They offer special bird watching tours, as well as tours of the grounds.

Next time I'd like to walk the longer trails

Charco del Ingenio is a good place to walk and take a brake from San Miguel de Allende
