A very short ride away from Monterrey, this quaint little colonial town has been rescued from oblivion and offers a lot of restaurants, places to stay or just nice little cobbled streets to walk during a weekend. Parking is not easy to find, but not terrible either. Hilltop "mirador" (sightseeing) offers a gorgeous view over the whole valley and the... More

Great architecture around downtown area. This town has a lot to explore and it next to a major road, easy access. You will need a couple of hours to see the area. The downtown area has many restaurants to choose from. Don't miss out on the overlook at the top of the hill behind the church. The lake is not... More

If you are looking for a smalelr town outside of Monterrey come here to get something to eat. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner in various restaurants and it's a nice break from the city bustle

Very nice small town, with Mexican architecture and peaceful narrow streets. The town is in the middle of hills and very close to the big mountains of the Sierra Madre Oriental. There are several restaurants with very authentic regional and Mexican food. They sell delicious ice cream and corn cake on the shops around the main square and the church.... More

Not really touristy by itself, but it is good to spend a Sunday morning. It is a good on-route option if you go to Cola de Caballo.

The "Plaza Central" is really pretty, the Plazuela del Mirador has a beautiful sight to the Presa Rodrigo Gomez. People are nice and everything around is very ordered and clean.

You can easily enjoy a weekend there or visit for the day. Great local food, nice places to walk or if you like extreme... More

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.
