    Discover El Membrillo in Mexico's colonial highlands

    A remote spot in the picturesque colonial highlands of Central Mexico, El Membrillo offers the chance to enjoy a relaxed vacation in a quiet setting. Whether making memories with family or friends, this sleepy town is the perfect choice for travelers eager to enjoy a little downtime. For those who prefer a little action, El Membrillo vacation rentals are within a reasonable driving distance of hotspots such as the cities of Guanajuato and Santiago de Querétaro, the latter just 30 miles south of the town and renowned for its baroque Spanish architecture and lively cultural celebrations.

    Tour fascinating landscapes near El Membrillo

    Although it's possible to discover the area at your own pace, many travelers seek a local tour company to lead the way. At nearby San Miguel de Allende, you might choose to explore historic architecture such as the mural-filled Sanctuary of Atotonilco and the neo-Gothic 17th-century Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel, an opulent church with an iconic pink spire. Foodies, meanwhile, can hang fire until nightfall when culinary tours of the city are in full swing. Tours include stops at several tasting locations, not least a rooftop dining space serving up great views alongside delicious jicama shrimp tacos.

    Culture on the doorstep of El Membrillo

    Museums and galleries abound in the cities surrounding El Membrillo. In Guanajuato, a UNESCO World Heritage city, popular spots include the Alhondiga de Granaditas, an art and history museum housed in a building used as a fortress during the country's War of Independence. For something a little different, the Museo de las Momias is a world-famous spot with more than 100 mummified bodies. Southwest of El Membrillo vacation rentals, lies the city of Celaya where the chance to enjoy sweet Mexican toast while enjoying the views of the landmark San Francisco Bola del Agua is always on the menu.

    Savor the spring in El Membrillo

    Demand for El Membrillo vacation rentals is at its highest in December through March when daytime conditions are particularly clear and sunny, though if you plan to visit during Easter week, or Semana Santa, you'll need to book your preferred home well in advance of your stay to avoid disappointment. Low season in the town kicks off in April and lasts all the way through to August. Temperatures over these summer months can be particularly stifling, though travelers can often overlook the humid and sometimes-rainy conditions in return for a tempting deal on their vacation home.

    Outdoor living awaits near El Membrillo

    Beaches may not be part of the deal in Mexico's colonial highlands but that's not to say that outdoor adventure is not on the agenda. Experience the area at its best by heading to Ejido de Boca de la Canada, around 25 miles west of the town, to enjoy western-style horseback riding on trails that meander past Canada de la Virgen, the 300-year-old Otomi Chapel and beyond through the surrounding countryside. Resting up after a long day on the trails by relaxing in the hot springs of La Gruta offers a blissful end to a perfect day.
