Bernal is definetely a magical town only 45 min away from Queretaro City. Colorful town and deilicious food like tradicionales Gorditas and cant miss a good Michelada. A lot of amazing artists if you know where to look beyond the touristy goods they sell on the street. I got an amazing framed photograph by Sergio Pineda (National Photographgy award winner)... More

When driving from Puebla to Queretaro, we decided on a side loop via Tequiusquiapan and Bernal. After all we had read on Bernal, we found it to be a bit of a disappointment. Definitely tourist oriented and the town character just seemed to be missing something?

Charming Puebla Majica "Majica Town" in Querataro. Great day trip from Mexico City, 2.5 hour drive, or side trip from San Migel de Allende or Queretaro City. Monolith makes for unique views from the charming village at the base. City has the San Miguell de Allende feel, (Colonial, clean with lots of charm and great architecture) with less tourists.

It's a must see when in Queretaro. Beautiful little town with lots of small shops. 3rd largest rock in America. Very interesting to see. Love walking to cobble street and eating in cute restaurants. Plenty of cute things to buy. Had a great day!

La Peña de bernal is a lovely little town not far from QuerÈtaro, mexico and two hours 30 min from Mexico City, it's very near to visit. First we went to see the monolithic rock, that it's impressive, the 3 largest in usa/Latin America. And then we went to the town, beautiful, full of shops! So lovely we had lunch... More

Quaint little town a little over an hour from San Miguel and worth the trip. Plenty of shopping, local food and music with a fantastic view of one of the largest monoliths in the world. If you are looking for a nice day trip, this should be on your list.

Quite a nice placed, enoyed our visit, you can take a motorcycle-cab that can take you there for 30MXP 1-3 passengers, the only bad thing is that there is no full access to climb it up, unless you have proper climbing equipment, there's no way to hike it

Huge monolith in the middle of the state of Queretaro. Good place to visit with several restaurants to choose from. I enjoyed an Italian place called The Piave really worth visiting. Ask the owner to prepare you a special meal.

Read about so made the detour and now ticked it of. Not up to the Pueblo Magico label. Need to improve the directions to and in the town, especially to the famous Peña. Centre needs coffee shops and places to sit . Not many good options for dining, but for curiosity the Gorditas. Blue tortillas filled with varios ingredients are... More
