“I want to go to Oaxaca for cooking classes and San Miguel de Allende for the art.” —Tara O’Leary, via Facebook

Start at Casa Oaxaca Café Restaurante for a nouveau-Oaxacan brunch in the garden terrace before heading to Casa de los Sabores cooking school ($75), run out of chef Pilar Cabrera’s house. Classes include a visit to the local market and mezcal tastings. A seven-hour drive is the easiest and most direct route to San Miguel de Allende. See the bounty of the colonial town’s art at Fábrica La Aurora, a collection of almost 40 galleries, shops, and studios. Hotel Matilda has an unrivaled contemporary collection and a posh infinity pool.
