Walking along the winding paths, the air smells of the blossoming flowers like the spring weather is giving summer a warm welcome. If you are looking for an unforgettable weekend in the spring, this is the best time to travel to Monterrey, otherwise known as, the Sultana del Norte.
The weather in Monterrey in the spring can vary greatly from a chilly 45 degrees Fahrenheit to a balmy 90 degrees in the direct sun. This means there is the perfect weather for every type of person in the spring.
Monterrey is located in the state of Nuevo Leon, not too far from the Chipinque Ecological Park, a popular tourist destination in the spring. Dive into a nature discovery without even leaving the city. Chipinque Ecological Park is nestled right in the center of the municipality of San Pedro Garza Garcia. Grab your bike, or rent one, to take a leisurely ride and fully appreciate the pre-colonial cobblestone roads and the breathtaking landscapes of the metro area. Chipinque Ecological Park has more than 4,000 acres to explore by walking, cycling or by car. If you want to get a little daring, try climbing 7 kilometers to the famous plateau and lookout point. Take a selfie as your keepsake of the Sierra Madre mountain range.
Another great place to visit is the Cola de Caballo, a waterfall located in the Cumbres de Monterrey National Park. This waterfall, measuring 27 meters tall, is famous due to the crystalline mountain spring falling in the form of a horse’s tail. You can walk along the paths and buy tasty corn bread or a fresh corn on the cob. If you’re an adrenaline-seeker, you’ll want to try the 70m bungee jump! You can say that you bungee jumped from the highest point Mexico!
After an adrenaline-packed day of sight-seeing, venture to the city center to enjoy a delightful afternoon with friends and tempt your palate with a regional dish offered by one of the many restaurants in the area. This Pueblo Magico has the same climate as Monterrey, Mexico most of the year, so you will truly appreciate the weather in Nuevo Leon as you stroll along the cobblestone roads and familiarize yourself with this beautiful “Magic Town”.
Without a doubt, summer also a beautiful season for traveling to Monterrey and visiting the Huasteca Canyon is a must. This rocky area is part of the Cumbre de Monterrey National Park, where you can go mountain biking, climbing or simply take a walk and take in the gorgeous scenery. This is a perfect for the whole family as there are intermittent rest areas for picnics with BBQ grills, games for kids and swimming pools.
Another great thing to do in Monterrey is to visit the Barrio Antiguo, which is only about 10 minutes from the Best Western Royal Courts Monterrey, where you can relax and kick back after a long day of exploring in a welcoming and comfortable room.
