Cola de Caballo
This Park, located near to
Santiago, southeast of Monterrey, is a protected area with security
and controlled access on the east side of the Sierra Madre. The
vegetation is thick and is made even more beautiful by the waterfall,
after which the place is named. The river flows through innumerable
spots that are ideal campsites.
Another natural attraction 40 km south
of Monterrey. Horses are available for hire for exploring the
countryside around the 24 m falls.
La Mesa Chipinque
Just 30 minutes from the center of Monterrey stands one of the most
incredible panoramic sites in the north of Mexico. Set 1,524m above
sea level in the majestic Sierra Madre, it commands spectacular views.
It was named after an indigenous patriarch who lived on the tableland
until he was driven out by the Spaniards. This place is ideal for
horseback riding and picnics.
