We’ve visited SMA for the past 20 years- rent a hotel room at moderate price. Sad to see the “ Chilangos” & tourists ( Us)invading but love the ambiance.We go got the Opera ( Concurso de San Miguel) & only wish Covid has prevented the wonderful musical offerings.
Food, rooms & doctors are much less than the States. Don’t want to Oversell it but have never felt unsafe.
