Is it safe to visit San Miguel de Allende Mexico and can I take the chance to enjoy a painting vacation away from snow in 2014-2015?

Many have asked us this questions! We lived in San Miguel de Allende and for some times in Guanajuato, the state capital, for about 4 years. We consider our self fortunate! Thursday afternoon in San Miguel, going to the bus stop. Located in the center of Mexico, about 4 hours drive from Mexico City, Guanajuato is one of the most beautiful, cultural area of Mexico and it's blessed with fantastic weather all year around. Traditional huge poppet going to celebrate in the main plaza of SAn Miguel de Allende, Nov. 2014 The streets are full of people starting as early as 6 AM, rushing to work, later you'll see parents taking their kids to school, the tourists start looking for a coffee shops about 9 AM. It is an over all friendly and relaxed atmosphere.  The local bakeries, such as la Espiga on Insurgentes, has delicious whole grain goods! The streets are busy all day and into the night. So far in 4 years I did not witness a street fight, burglary, or police botheri
