Here are a few places we've visited.
Grutas de Garcia...or the Garcia Caves. You take a tram up to a massive cave – there is even a chapel inside dedicated to La Virgen de Gaudalupe.
This is in the village of Villa de Garcia where Ben spent a couple months as a missionary. Its an old Colonial town with a cute little city center.
…Yellow shirt, yellow wall, yellow ice-cream. Happy Boy
This is Cola de Cabello...or Horsetail falls. We plan on going back here when my parents come because the drive up to the falls is really fun, the little tourist area around the trail is really cute, and because Ben didn't get to bungee jump (120 feet drop for $30). It closed by the time we got over there.
La Parque Estanzuela - Its a little walk in the woods that costs 5 pesos. A fun little building is there that teaches kids about the environment – it also made for a cool picture.
…make sure to bring a stroller on long walks.
Monterrey’s MacroPlaza. The building is now a museum – which are very hard to do with children.
