*'''Take Spanish lessons'''. There are schools that will offer classes and arrange a "home stay" with a host family for a very good price. Group classes range from a few hours per week to Academia Hispano Americana's intensive 5-1/2 days per week, 8 hours per day that teach everything from beginning basics to simultaneous translation skills. '''Habla Hispana Spanish school'''[http://www.MexicoSpanish.com] offers intensive Spanish program too in a friendly and personalized settings.
 
*'''Travel outside of SMA to the thermal pools''' for an afternoon of relaxation. Hail a taxi or grab a bus for just a few dollars to these pools, but be sure to arrange return transportation or know when the last bus arrives. The only hotel near the pools is said to be expensive and generally booked.
 
*Also try visiting '''Guanajuato''', the Capital of the state. It is known for its network of tunnels under the city and for its "Museo de las Momias" (mummy museum), and you can also see Cristo Rey atop the Cerro de Cubilete. If you have time Dolores Hidalgo is 40 km away and is worth a visit as it is the birthplace of Mexican independence - and a great place to sample odd ice cream flavors like pork rind and avocado.
*Take in one of the numerous '''festivals'''. The place celebrates Semana Santa (Easter holy week) with impressive and touching parades, and Dia de las Locos in mid-June is also worthwhile. The days leading up to Independence Day (September 16) and New Year's in San Miguel are favorite times for Mexicanos. If you're really bold you can try the Sanmiguelada, San Miguel de Allende's version of the running of the bulls which takes place sometime around Sept. 20 each year, but watch out for public disorder and drunkenness which is almost non-existent any other time of the year.
