Monterrey has a river walk similar to San Antonio Tx. It's bigger than the one in Texas but different. There are four or five restaurants. the Mexican History museum, the original foundry that established Monterrey and a boat ride with commentary but all in Spanish. Very few people speak English in Monterrey. The huge plaza is part of the Governor's palace and the surrounding area is businesses and restaurants. We were there at Christmas so there was a light show at night that would have been good to see. Very clean, very safe and worth a look if you need to kill a few hours in Monterrey.

This was one of the locations that is in touch with most attractions downtown. It has several statues as well as being near art museo like the MARCO, and walking distance from the inter plaza (shopping) and Barrior Antiqua.. so a good location and very touristy.

What a fun shopping experience. Indoor shops as well as outdoor vendors. Everything you want to find while shopping is there in one form or another. We felt safe and secure while there. The Policia presence is strong and most people were friendly. Not all shops speak English so a translating app could help. Shops open around 10am and if you like fewer people then mornings are for you. If you like lots of people, after 3pm is bussy.

We enjoyed strolling through this park. We were hit up a couple times by some assertive students doing ‘fundraising’ but they were polite and respectful.

Another must see, if you're in centro. Have lunch, or come for photos. You can find small stalls around to shop. However in summer, there is not much shade.

This is pretty much the center of the city and gives you close access to museums, shopping and food.

Come and check it off you list!

A decent but average central plaza by the normal standards in Mexico.

Not too many shops or restaurants ... mostly just the city and state government buildings and nothing more. Not lively at all.
