The day after we arrived n Monterrey, we set out to do a tour of this wonderful place. With the time change and a difference of 20°C, we had no idea the fatigue that we would suffer on the way up. But, the landscape captivated us, and even with the jet-lag and humidity, it was completely worth it. We reached the top completely breathless. It´s located south of the city by National Highway 85. There are beautiful and peaceful trails that penetrate the pine and oak forests and pass near beautiful streams, waterfalls and the majestic Alamos.

I have very fond memories of visiting this beautiful city of Monterrey in Nuevo Leon state. When I look back, I am dazzled at how beautiful it was. I will talk to you about one of the museums that is in the downtown area, "The Metropolitan Museum" located opposite the Plaza Zaragoza, in the heart of the historic city center, formerly Palace Municipal. This museum has four temporary exhibitions, a central courtyard and an auditorium where they perform various cultural activities. In advance I apologize for the poor quality of the video, but I hope they will give you an idea of ​​this beautiful museum.

Caves in Monterrey
Grutas de Garcia
(8)
It's really tempting to spend a couple of hours outside in the fresh air, especially when you are out at 40°C. This was one of the largest and unspoiled caves I've ever seen in my life. Spectacular! To get there, you go by cable car, which climbs the 80 meters to the entrance of the caves. Its impressive rock formations fill the spacious "rooms" in the caves. Some are famous for their beauty and spectacular nature, like the light room, which is illuminated by a beam of natural light that comes from a hole in the cave's roof. The eighth wonder of the world, is a formation in which a stalactite and a stalagmite have combined to complete a column. The air lounge has a balcony 40 meters high with a splendid view of the "hand", from which you can see an amazing hand-shaped stalagmite. There are also many fascinating structures, like the theatre and the Christmas tree, due to the formation of rocks and caves with superb lighting.
