Monterrey - Post Report Question and Answers

What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Travel around the country is exceptional. Zacatecas is a five-hour drive away, and it is a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage city. Flights elsewhere are frequent and inexpensive -- both coasts, Mexico City, Guanajuato/San Miguel, and many other destinations. Travel to the U.S. is also cheap and easy. - Feb 2021

Mexico City is great. - Sep 2018

View of the mountains, great shopping, comfortable place to live. - Aug 2015

I loved it, everything about it. There are tons of things to do and see in Monterrey, and plenty (with ease of getting there) to see outside of Monterrey. - Mar 2014

Good food (although Monterrey is not the highlight of Mexican cuisine), lots of outdoor/cultural activities, great travel opportunities. - Oct 2012

Monterrey has a decent number of local attractions - the Grutas de Garcia, Santiago, the Paseo Sta. Lucia, Horno 3, etc. The security situation degraded by the time I left that all of these places were off-limits, but when it was safe, these were really fun to do. - Oct 2010

This post hasn't been too much of a culture shock for our children. There are tons of American families around and the schools have been wonderful. - Jul 2010
