La Peña de Bernal is not only the humongous monolith that peacefully watches besides you. The town from which the rock got its name is also what makes the experience spectacular. The people in town are kind; I’m not surprised it’s a mayor tourist location in the region. Villa de Bernal is not a fancy place; it’s a small town.... More

This is a must do for everyone. The climb is really not that bad and once you get up there the views are amazing! All you have to do is take it easy and everyone will get up there. I definitely reccommend this to everyone.

An excellent town to visits besides the rock climb. The clean streets and good maintenance of the town makes it look charming and relaxing. New hotels have openned recently so it is recommended to stay at least one night to smell the fresh air in the morning and to stand astonished about the sunset.

Best time to climb is early in the morning before the Sun gets hot. There's a cold beer in the town afterward with lunch. Great beginning to the Day

Easy bus ride from Queretaro. You get off on the side of the road and walk through the town. If you want to actually hike the mt, you need good shoes. Many times I was scrambling on all fours and came back down sliding on my bottom. The altitude and steep climb are a challenge, but families and many out... More

This is a pretty village with an interesting mountain to hike up. There is a path winding up the mountain and along the path are small tiendas and places to buy snacks. The actually mountain climb begins at the last tienda. wish we had gone further up.

This was a must see on our site-seeing list when visiting the heart of Mexico area. Wear good hiking shoes, as the climb up the monolith is fairly treacherous...and bring your water. It's a lovely view of the valley from just about anywhere on the hike. We visited in April when the weather was about 75 degrees. The sun was... More
