In Monterrey you can have the best of two worlds, you can enjoy the Mexican traditions and colonial architecture of its buildings and churches, altogether with world-class services and attention. If you are looking for nature, culture, art, music, sports, show business, hospitality, parks, and museums, you are sure to find the best service and treatment in Monterrey.

Monterrey is placed in the middle of a lot of mountains. Where ever you look you'll see a mountain.That's why is difficult to notice the size of the city, but let me tell you is a big one!!!.

Is located in the North of Mexico at only 300 km from the USA boundary.

The Metropolitan area of Monterrey is a composite of other cities like <i>Guadalupe, San Nicolas de los Garzas, Santa Catarina, San Pedro Garza García, Apodaca </i> and ,of course, <i>Monterrey</i>. There is no distance between that cities so they are like one, even they have differents mayors and laws.

People on Monterrey live because their industry and the commerce. It have an adventage in comparision another industrial cities of Mexico: the nearness with USA.

The city is clean and full of fast food restaurants, all the new stores and malls have American styles and the names are in English, and the local people is starting to speak spanglish (mixture of Spanish and English) but we still have mexican traditions and way of life (family, religion, etc)

    I haven't been to Monterrey for years, so it was fun to see how the city has changed. I am sorry that I missed visiting the Cascada cola de Caballo. Nice pages.
