It could be interesting if you really get involve with the whole environment and get in the mood! There are very few thing to do in Bernal. The town is magical but small!! All you´ll get is small hotels with little comfort and small restaurants, nothing fancy! However If you are one of those who like these things, then you... More

Amazing view, the only thing is that the city itself seems to me that needs a Little more maintenance, and a lot of stores are close... But it is cheap :)

This is a Pueblo Mágico, 40 minutes away from Querétaro City, it is awesome and very charming. I enjoyed eating at La Terreza, I also rode a Carcachita that gave us a tour of the town. I would definitely go back and stay for a night or two at La Peña de Bernal, it is worth it.

I enjoyed my day spent in Bernal, mostly because of the hour I spent talking to a local taxi driver, who was washing his vehicle, and a woman that ran a shoe store near the bus stop. The town itself is interesting, especially the woolen factory. If you are into geology, you'll like the big rock.

This is considered a "Pueblo Mágico" by the Mexican Government and it really is! This is a beautiful town next to the Peña de Bernal, there is great food, local stores and hotels you can stay the night!

A lovely weekend at Tequisquiapan brought to the table the idea of closing a romantic weekend with a quick trip to Bernal, my wife was very enthusiastic as she has always loved the idea of hiking and having a typical breakfast at Bernal. We drove for about 20 minutes from Tequisquiapan and the road is amazing, as we neared our... More

This is an enchanting city. Maybe because it is home to this incredibly huge monolith--a giant rock jutting up from the ground and hovering over the quaint little city. Nice shops, great food items (try the local candies!) unique to the area, and a natural wonder. There is something magical about this place, and the locals think so too. Worth... More

Quaint village, amazing scenery but pretty much geared to tourism. There are some average eateries and lots of shopping. Can get very crowded on weekend afternoons. If you get there early, hike the trail up the Pena while it is still uncrowded and cool.
