  • Not know what to do? See Chipinque! It is cheap, different and I assure you the routine sales, and leaving the hustle and bustle of the city is invaluable.

  • With great, magnificent view when hiking, this natural park is probably the best place-to-be for nature lovers in Monterrey. Close to the city (almost immerse on it), always clean and well maintained,...  more »
  • A local MUST! Surely the best views of the city and if you are lucky to go up on a breezy day you will be treated by a view of practically the entire city... Pretty good for bird watchers too!  more »

  • Fancy mountain. You can get lots of fun by doing sports or just driving up to La Meseta to have a pic nic
  • Beautiful views of the city. Different animals roaming around free. It's just wonderful. Perfect place for hiking and trail trekking.
  • Great hiking right next to the city. There are some amazing looking summit trails within the park as well, but make sure to get the permit beforehand, and start your ascent before 8am (I think that was the cutoff time, but check with the office to make sure). If you want to get a permit, knowing Spanish will help a lot, although the permit office ended up being helpful despite my lack of Spanish knowledge.
  • Great place for healthy outdoor activities like walk, run, bike and trek. If you want to be in contact with nature this is also an excellent place.
  • Great place to enjoy outdoors, fresh air, animals, cool bike routes, trekking, etc
