We would like to drive from San Antonio, TX, to Puebla in three days and would love advice on our itinerary to see if it makes sense. We don’t want to drive at night and we don’t want to be in the car nonstop every day. The itinerary we have in mind is:
San Antonio-Saltillo, via Laredo and Monterrey (352 miles)
Saltillo-Queretaro (406 miles) (we’d like to spend the night in Q’taro because it’s a nice place)
Queretaro-Puebla (210 miles if we go through Mexico City)
Is this reasonable?
Actually, we have questions about all three of these days. If the border crossing takes a long time we might have a hard time making the whole distance the first day, which would make the second day more difficult. And on the third day would it make sense to try to find a side route around Mexico City?
One way we thought of shortening the journey is to start in Laredo instead of San Antonio the first day and cross the border first thing in the morning. Does this make sense?
We’ll appreciate any advice! Many thanks!
