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.

I was there 2 times in Sept. 2012. It is very nice place with an amazing view of the lake. It is good when you can go to the restaurant "Las Palomas".

Just a very nice village to visit, I would recommend staying on the hotel on main square. Many outdoor activities around there

It was officially declared "a magic town", what means its a tiny mexican town with old flavour and worth a visit. Then, 3 years ago, the area became dangerous because if was caught in the middle of the drug dealers war. It´s slowly coming back to life.

I love this town! It reminds me of old mexico with the old church and little plaza and the setting of the mountains in the background. It is a great change from the modern monterrey and is worth a day trip or a trip for breakfast!

Insecurity. Drug dealers are there and passing through all day. You cannot visit it at night. It's dangerous. People are robbed and kidnapped

After looking around take a trip to Horsetail Falls, Plan to visit during the morning and daytime. Market in Los Cavazos on the... More
