City Tour From Monterrey

3 reviews
Get to know a city that few visitors spend time exploring during a private, guided tour of Monterrey’s historic highlights and principal attractions. Accompanied by a driver-guide, enjoy onboard commentary and insight you wouldn’t get if traveling independently, as you’re taken between places such as the Macroplaza, the Metropolitan Cathedral, and the Bishop’s Palace.

Chipinque is a mountain located in San Pedro. You can climb it by foot or by car. We chose by car and had to pay a small fee, about 60 pesos. At the top there is an hotel, a restaurant, a lookout, a couple of concrete slides, snack and refreshments store, restrooms, parking lot, a playing ground for kids, several trees, some benches and some walking trails. A lot of locals enjoy jogging and walking the trails on weekends. I recommend using a car and park it at the top. Take food and sodas for a picnic (not alcohol nor bonfires allowed in the park). The slides are a lot of fun. The place is kid friendly. You can birdwatch. You can spend just half an hour in there, go to the lookout, take some pics and get out or you can spend the whole day there.

I would regularly come here with family and friends to hike and walk the trails. Hard to believe that in mere minutes you can go from high desert to misty pine forests. Bring plenty of water. There is a snack shop at the top and sometimes there is a local fair with vendors there as well. Great places to play for kids. Beware of the coatis (Mexican long tailed raccoons) as they will steal your lunch and are not afraid of people!

My husband and I went here for a run/hike. Although there was plenty of parking lots since it was a perfect day weather wise and a Sunday it was very busy. Expect to take some time to park but know it is worth it. Tons of trails and a great place for hikes, runs and biking. We even found a gigantic cement slide to try, just a very pleasant park. Some restrooms and water fountains are available but I would suggest bringing water.

This is a mountainous forest close to Monterrey. If you are coming here and have nothing else to do block time and worth a visit. We booked a tour and it went to multiple places and this was the last stop. We got in at 4 and were out by 6.30. The bus meanders throw hairpin bends and reaches the very top. There is a view point to see the city of Monterrey. There are some animals around this point. Cross the road and walk a few steps up to a ‘play area’ and an ‘insectarium’ . The insect museum was a joke. We then took a 3.2 km trek through the forest edge to place that ended in visiting a burnt house built by some General. I did see a woodpecker that has forgotten how to peck wood for insects as it has become used to eating popcorn and pizza. I had a guide with me and he explained a few things.
