Monterrey, the capital of Nuevo Leon State in Mexico is rich in history and culture. Monterrey is called the most modern and “Americanized” city in all of Mexico.
1) Santa Lucia Riverwalk, an artificial river built between 1996 and 2007. It currently joins the Macroplaza with the Fundidora Park. This reminds me of the riverwalk we saw in Providence, Rhode Island. Since being there I have wished we had one of those in San Diego!
4) Cola de Caballo (Spanish for “Horse Tail”) is a waterfall about 40km (25mi) from Monterrey, Mexico, in the town of Villa de Santiago, Nuevo León. It is open to the public and is accessible via a walking path.
5) Grutas de Garcia – an extensive (2km?) cave system located northwest of Monterrey in the Villa de Garcia. A scenic “chair-lift” vehicle lifts visitors to the caves’ entrance hundreds of feet above, on the hill slope.
