Quaint old restaurants and shops with a relaxed peaceful reflection of old Mexico. A beautiful old church and traditional town square where people sit and talk and rest.

We enjoyed Sunday morning and went to church at 11 a.m., they have a little handcrafts market on the side of the church where you can buy typical candies and wonder around.

Went there on the first days of November and the whole town had the Dia de Muertos decoration and it was fabulous. The town was packed, the atmosphere was incredible, the food was just amazing. We loved that place!

This is an awsome little town very close from Monterrey area. Santiago has great restaurants and a very romantic downtown, with narrow streets, and great views.

Santiago is a beautiful, colorful and a very clean town. Take a walk around to experience its atmosphere. From downtown there is an access to an area where the sight is spectacular. Both to the mountain ranges and to Presa la Boca.
