The Magic of the San Miguel de Allende Cosmo Season

Sean and Mittie | Recommendation Corner: San Miguel de Allende Cosmo Season 5

When people think of San Miguel, they reference the architecture, the cobblestone streets and the mountains. If they think of plant life beyond cacti and mesquite trees, they probably think of the spectacular, periwinkle Jacarandas that bloom in April; and yes, they are worth seeing, allergies and all.  But the pale pink or purple Cosmos are a much less widely talked about natural phenomenon, and just as beautiful.

Maybe I’m just partial because their season and mine coincide. My birthday being on October 6th, if I happen to be in San Miguel, I spend the day surrounded by a sea of cosmos. Cosmos, part of the sunflower family, are native to Mexico and appears in other areas of the Americas, appearing most frequently in meadows and shrublands.

The San Miguel de Allende Cosmo season begins in September and October. The cosmos bloom in enormous swaths along the countryside, making the entire fields pink. The best place to see them is off of Salida de Quereataro. While leaving the city, heading toward Queretaro, take the turnoff on the right to a community called Jalpa. A very bumpy road, take your time and keep your eyes open for the magic.

    I was there in April for the Jacarandas…now I need to get back in Sept/Oct for the Cosmos. I just need to retire from teaching, so I can vacation anytime I’d like! 🙂
