Monterrey is my home town and has extremely hot and dry weather for at least 10 months a year. When eventually friends, family or work partners visit the city, we take them to Santa Lucía river drive by night, when is still very hot but at least the sun is not in your eyes frying you. In general, I don't consider Monterrey or the state of Nuevo León a tourist attraction. People come here to visit family, study at one of the many Universities, work or business. In any case, I do not recommend to rent a car and try to drive in the crazy and unexisting signaling streets and avenues; very dangerous driving conditions.

Beautiful place, is a walk from Parque Fundidora to downton. But can also take a boat, which I recomend if it's summer!!! Because weather can be incredibly hot.

At the end of the trip you can visit the museums around, or maybe take a bite in the restarants nearby.

The best way to go from "Parque Fundidora" to the "Macroplaza"!
Take a boat that will transport you through an artificial river filled with crystal water. A guide explains the construction, surroundings and some history.

It is a nice renewed area of Monterrey city where you can walk along the river that recreates that old time river where the city was founded more than 400 years ago.
There you can have lunch or dinner at a restaurant set aside the river or just have some beer accompanied with music.
There are also excellents museums and galleries around....and it is just next to "Gran Plaza" the biggest on on the world...even larger than Moscow red plaza...
