Interjet, the low cost Mexican airline, has launched a new seasonal route between the beach town of Puerto Vallarta and the colonial city of San Miguel de Allende.
This new direct flight will take travelers from the city of Leon, an hour and a half from San Miguel de Allende, to Puerto Vallarta in ninety minutes.
Flights will depart from el Bajio on Thursdays at 8 AM and arrive in Puerto Vallarta at 9 AM; flights from Puerto Vallarta will depart Thursdays at 9:25 and Sundays at 9:15, arriving an hour later in el Bajio.
San Miguel de Allende and nearby sanctuary were declared a World Heritage Site when UNESCO met in Quebec, Canada in July 2008. It was chosen both for its well-preserved Baroque colonial architecture and layout as well as its role in the Mexican War of Independence. The area which has been inscribed includes 64 blocks of the historic center and the sanctuary of Atotonilco with the title of “Villa Protectora de San Miguel el Grande y el Santuario de Jesus Nazareno de Atotonilco.”
