  • The Desierto de los Leones is a special place near the city of Mexico. Cool climate due to its height, it hosts a former convent that is worth knowing, and just as beautiful gardens. Outside of the ex-convent there are many street food stalls and some restaurants, the most slightly expensive for what they offer and for the service you provide. Finally, go to the Desierto de los Leones is a bit like getting to the European Alps but eating mushroom quesadillas, flower, tinga... etc. But they are no Alps Alps, i.e. without spikes around, but if with enough pine forest.

  • It’s a good place to run and take a juice early in the morning
  • Excellent ride without leaving much of the city. You can enjoy family. The convent is spectacular. There are very good music rondallas. The food is very good. Do not miss it. Excellent recommendation for family rides.

  • It is a beautiful place full of nature, ideal to go with the family, very well maintained, very large, comfortable clothes are recommended since they are many stairs. Care areas as well so they last us long time more

  • To get from Mexico City (cdmx) in the truck, you should first go to nurseries, there questions how to go to the desert of the Lions (Chapel, you must tell them you're going to the Park which also there are a few villages which are called so) and say you that you have 2 options , one that takes you to a little town near and hence takes a taxi, the other is that there you go to saneglin and get off at the station of San angelin trucks ((I think) is opposite an electra, is the Park of the poets or artists) and hence split trucks to the desert costs 20 pesos, and drops you off at the entrance of the former convent of the desert and they become very few, strange if pass more than 3 people toward the wilderness, and to return, there are few trucks, going back (maybe 2 all day) then you have to return by taxi, I told them I was going to any metro and left us on an avenue where he spent with truck that left us on the subway, taxi we collect 40 pesos per 2 people. And there is no sign of cellular or Telcel of nunefon or Nextel
