Not only you will find the amazing views, green mountains and colorful houses... Santiago also has great restaurants, ice cream shops and La Boca Lake to spend an afternoon in a boat.

This is a small city outside Monterrey. It is somehow a colonial city, has restaurants, small stores and places to sit. You can visit the church.

Walking around in Santiago can be a good way to change gears and forget Monterrey's high pace and prevalent traffic. You can buy a few things at the central Plaza such as jewelry, and handcrafts, but be aware that you are going overpay compared to Los Cavazos, a few kilometers away. A few years back, it used to be a... More

Its a simple old town. You can find the fascinating view of the La Boca from here. You can buy some local food and souvenir here with a reasonable price. You may also grab a chance to ride on a horse nearby.

This place is worth the ride to go see. Historic little square, beautiful church, great restaurant, artisans and a great view. Put it on the list.
