The temperature was close to freezing in the evening and morning, and we were unprepared. I think this was an unusual cold snap, but make sure to check the forecast before coming. We were there on a Sunday and there were crowds of people going up the Peña. It would be best to start your hike well before noon to... More

Worth the drive from Queretaro (about 30 minutes). Be sure to take a jacket and scarf if you stay past sunset! The fountain and lights are stunning!

If you are traveling here expecting to see little towns such as Tequisquiapan or San Miguel de Allende, you're up for a disappointment. This is a small town and as such, it has its own charm. I'd say plan a half day visit, eat nice food and if you like extreme sports such as rappelling, you can do it here... More

At least during weekdays Bernal is a very quiet town. There is not a lot to do in this charming town other than shopping and admiring the huge monolith. But the trip is worthwhile for this alone.

It is a small city which can be experienced and appreciated in a day. Pena de Bernal, the tallest monolith surpassing the Rock of Gibraltar stands out and can be seen peeking above the colorful walls and buildings, many are refurbished old villas. I was dazzled by the color of the buildings and narrow walk ways.

Totally recommend this place, its beautiful. You can access some boutique hotels to have a drink. Weather was perfect. Try the "gorditas" really good ones, don't be afraid to try the salsa! Really good!
