Fun on a hot day!

Nice and cool on a hot day, the trip is relaxing and pretty. It's not cheap if there are a lot of you and you may need to wait for a few boats to get a place. However, it's fun... read more

You dont need to book a tour, so save the 100 USD that tripadvisor suggests, just start walking next to the river and follow your steps back to the starting point, either the Museo de Historia Mexicana or the Fundidora Park, its a very long walk and if you feel lazy there are boats that do the trip for 4...

After spending hours at the Museo de Historia Mexicana it was nice to walked on this street with the river slingering next to you. You can either walk or take a boat tour. I like to walk since you have the opportunity to stop and one of the many coffé places for a relaxing break. Be aware that this is... More

Nice and relaxing place to walk and to ride a boat. If you are visiting Monterrey for the first time, this is a great way to see what Monterrey has to offer. Visit also the fundidora museum and some of the best restaurants in the city. Bring your friends, your mother, relax and enjoy the ride.

Beautiful waterway in the city: the trail begins in the macro plaza and ends at Parque Fundidora. There is a water taxi, but I recommend walking up and taxing back. What's weird is that this entire waterway is artificial: the water looks like pool water and the pathway it so perfect it never feels natural, but it can be beautiful... More

This man made canal is an excellent site for just talking a long walk or finding a scenic location for a meal.. Everything is nice and clean along the canal.. they also have boat rides for those that cannot walk that far..

The Riverwalk excursion lead us to take the boats on a tour from downtown to the Fundidora. You can tell that the city has actually put a lot of work and effort into making this a true beautiful recreational area for its citizens and visitors alike.A round-trip ticket is highly recommended as the boats fill up quickly getting around the...

If you're in Monterrey, consider going to zona Centro and take the boat rides in Paseo Santa Lucia. It should be totally safe on daylight :)

Paseo de Santa Lucia an amazing place, I went on a boat that costs 60 MXN the round trip which takes you back and forth to the other side of the river. The river gives a beautiful view of downtown Monterrey. Also, I recommend you to go to a restaurant located on the way, it is called Tenerias. If you... More
