With Juan Manuel
Juan Manuel is a shaman who knows the flowers ... plants ... herbs ... and birds ... with a vast knowledge of the area, the history and the folk lore of San Miguel de Allende ... who wants to share his joy in the campo.
What do we do? We take a walk in the campo ... have a picnic or bar-b-q ... and usually take a burro to carry what we don’t want to. Occasionally we ride a burro.
Burro Trekking has recently been optimized in that all treks are now custom designed for you and your group.
If you want a trek ... Contact us and we will begin working together. What kind of trek do you want? Easy? Challenging? Overnight? Something from our list? Something new? Something for kids? (They trek at half price.) Talk to us!!
Unless otherwise noted, for a short day trek prices are 200 each with a minimum of 1,000 pesos. If transportation has to be arranged ...that is ... more than 3 people need a ride provided ... then there is an extra fee.
For a longer day trek, it is 250 per person, with a minimum of 1,200 pesos. Transportation same as above
These prices include food ... burro ... some transportation ... perhaps a guard for the vehicles.
If you would like to add to your group, then we can help you advertise on the forum and / or we can send out a mailing to see if other Trekkers would like to join you.
You get to decide things like ... we want dogs ... or ... no dogs cause we want quiet times to watch for birds. You can specify no smokers. You decide if time is important to you cause you have an evening appointment ... or ... we are relaxed and let the day have its way with us.

My favorite trek so far. Totally delightful, the trail leaves the pueblo of Doña Juana, and winds gradually upwards, criss crossing a stream until we get to a large, shady oak tree with plenty of stone “chairs”. Oak Creek Canyon if you will. It really feels like you have had a worthy trek in a remote setting and the views satisfy something in your soul. At the oak we have a snack the lunch burro carried and then you have a choice of resting for a while or of going on up the steeper bits to a silver mine. When the more ambitious get back we have lunch and then we all return together.
This is great for kids in that it is not too steep. We can even arrange for extra burros for those who would prefer their trek by burro back.
Driving 1 hour, 30 minutes each way
Trekking 3 hours
Lunch 1 hour
Cost 250 pesos ... burro back 100 extra.
Level Anyone. Very adaptable, from burro back to a bit challenging.
Meet Soriana 9:30 am ... (request Mega if that is easier for you.)
So plan on more than 5 hours all inclusive.

Wow ... the flavor is what? Palm sugar and anise?
