Getting to know Queretaro
The UNESCO protected historic center of Queretaro was the scene for the beginning of Mexico’s independence, as well as other historical events. The architecture in Querétaro, a mixture of ancient, colonial and modern, is like no other in the country.
The landscape of Queretaro is like a stage of natural wonders and micro-climates, including woods, rainforest, desert, waterfalls, caves and thermal baths, turning it into a natural attraction for lovers of outdoor activities. The city is framed by mountains so high that they seem to touch the sky.
Adventure tourism around Queretaro
If adventure tourism is your passion, visit “El Jabali”, a camp located in the middle of the Extoraz river canyon. Stay overnight in cabins or camp outdoors. The only way to reach this location is by ATV/Quads from the town of San Joaquin, but getting there is a part of the fun as you will drive through rivers, canyons and natural forests.
Colonial cities nearby: San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato
Just an hour away by car, San Miguel de Allende is one of Mexico's most beautiful colonial cities and well worth a weekend stay. Less known by most travelers, but equally stunning in architecture and rich in art, music and culture, is the hilltop city of Guanajuato. Guanajuato's cultural festivals attract many enthusiasts throughout the year, particularly in October, during the Cervantino Festival.
