City of the Mountains
An industrial powerhouse and a major transportation hub close to the Texas border, Monterrey offers visitors a blend of culture, art, and history. You could easily send most of your Monterrey vacation strolling the city's appealing river walk, touring renowned museums, and partying the night away at any number of bars in Barrio Antiguo (old town). Yet what makes holidays in Monterrey so special actually lies beyond the hectic urban center. Rolling foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range offer outstanding climbing and hiking opportunities, with picturesque waterfalls and thick forests creating a lush and tranquil setting just a drive from the city center. Customize your holiday with our Mexico road trip planning app to create an adventure that suits you.
