For all those who are desperately looking for a different destination for Easter, and that is away from the beach, then take any of the flights to Monterrey mx may be the perfect choice and thus fully meet your expectations.
A city full of interesting places
The city is surrounded by mountains, so at the beginning it offers a spectacular view wherever it is seen, and if you are looking to capture the view, the “flagpole” lookout is without a doubt the best option. When you begin the descent, you can take a tour of the Regional Museum of Nuevo León, also known as the Bishop’s Museum, a place of great historical and architectural value where you will travel in time and discover an unknown side of the Sultana del Norte.
One of the great attractions of Monterrey is the famous Macroplaza, which occupies 40 hectares and makes it the fifth largest plaza in the world. On the other side of the street, you will meet the Museum of Mexican History, an area that will transport you from pre-Hispanic times to the twentieth century.
If after the tours of the museums you want a break, then you can visit the Paseo Santa Lucia, a channel that links the Museum of Mexican History with the Fundidora Park. You can walk its 2.5 kilometers on foot, or on a small boat. Throughout the ride, you can see murals of Monterrey artists, sculptures, illuminated fountains, various bridges and restaurants that allow you to take a short stop to the walk to taste a snack, a pretty memorable option for a night walk.
When you arrive at the Fundidora Park, which is considered an Industrial Archeology Site Museum, you can visit Oven 3, which is the only metal furnace open to the public around the world. In addition to enjoying a series of activities in the various venues around the park such as interactive parks, the Nuevo Leon movie theater, among other places that will make you spend hours of fun.
If what you want, is something more natural
Visit the Chipinque Ecological Park, it is one of the most important natural areas of the region, and if you are adventurous, put on tennis shoes and sportswear, because reaching the top will be a challenge. In this park, with children’s areas, gyms, spaces for observation, hiking and cycling, you can breathe a different air among so many trees and vegetation.
Another of the natural attractions that Monterrey offers is the Huasteca Canyon, a rocky landscape ideal for mountain biking, rock climbing, or simply to walk outdoors and admire the imposing of being in the middle of this limestone ravine and desert landscape.
And if we talk about food
You can´t take one of the flights to Monterrey and not taste the delicious cabrito or the machaca, for the dessert a rich glory and if you want to refresh yourself, then drink a “rusa”, a typical drink that will quench your thirst faster what a rooster sings.
