Overall Guide : Monterrey has enough attractions to keep its visitors occupied. It offers some of Mexico’s best hiking as well as exploring and biking activities. Birding is another popular activity among tourists as well as locals. A pleasant diversion from the city’s bustle... more is its beautiful museums and cathedrals. The Museum of Mexican History is renowned for its large collection of artefacts pertaining to Mexican history. The Macro Plaza is another charming attraction which features some remarkable architecture, plush gardens and buildings. The Zona Rosa, a popular mall adjacent to the Gran Plaza, is well reputed as a shopper’s delight among locals and visitors alike. For those looking out for some adventure sports, Monterrey Grand Prix is an event not to be missed. Usually held in March, the race draws large crowds to the city.
Overall rating 10
Overall Guide : There is always something to do, in the city and surroundings like Grutas de Garcia, Cola de Caballo, Chipinque, etc. Lovely city for those who like extreme sports, have children and look for activities (Kidzania, Fundidora, etc.), students (top level... more universities, young environment and places to go) and businessmen who want to invest (great infrastructure and internal market).
Not to be missed Paseo Santa Lucia , Matacanes , Serro de la Silla
