Monterrey

Trip Planner Mexico  /  Northern Mexico  /  Nuevo Leon  /  Monterrey

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. Monterrey is in Nuevo Leon. Our Mexico day trip site allows you to plan your trip to Monterrey and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Monterrey

If the main purpose of your visit to Monterrey is sightseeing, stay in the old central neighborhood of Barrio Antiguo, where you can find everything from budget-friendly youth hostels to hotels housed in historical buildings and large hotels. Those visiting for business purposes might prefer to look south of the river to Zona San Augustin, which offers mid-range hotels in more modern surroundings.
