My husband and I were looking for an escape from our ordinary hum-drum lives when we decided to go to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. We live in Edinburg, Texas, for those of you who don't know where that is, its about 20 minutes north of the Mexican/American border. So instead of going to San Antonio or Austin we headed South. We started our trip with a little hesistation, as we were told that Mexico is a very dangerous place to visit especially for a GRINGA, even though my husband is Hispanic. I can truthfully say that I didn't get that many looks as I would if I were in Reynosa Mexico (a border town), the people were all very nice and respectful.
Upon our arrival back in the U.S. my husband and I couldn't believe the drastic difference between the two countries that share a border. It was so quiet here, I couldn't hear any cars or bus horns blasting. Oddly enough we somehow found Monterrey to be an relaxing escape.
Its seems like almost anywhere you look in Monterrey you will see a mountain.
This picture is of a festival that was in the Macro Plaza with the mountain in the backpack.
I just love this picture...the sky is so blue.
- Pros:Good cheap food and beer, friendly people, great night clubs!
- Cons:I can't think of any right now.
- In a nutshell:Can't wait to get back!
Obispado is up in the hills of Monterrey overlooking part of the city. It is a museum that has historical artifacts... more travel advice
This was a really cool little spot, the only thing was that we eventually found out that it was the local gay club.... more travel advice
