Destinations around Mexico City Route

Puebla, Mexico City, Cholula, Metepec, La Marquesa, Toluca

Start the route through three states of the country beginning at the city of Puebla. Take a stroll through its Historic Downtown and admire the hundreds of colonial buildings that still stand in perfect condition. The places you must visit are the Capilla del Rosario (Rosario Chapel), the Cathedral and the Palacio Municipal (Municipal Palace), among many others. Don't miss out on the many cultural activities they offer in its many museums and galleries.

The Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Cholula is part of Puebla’s metropolitan area, you can get there by road or on the tourist train. We recommend visiting the Central Plaza (Main Square), eating at one of its restaurants and going to the different handcraft stores. The jewels of this town are undoubtedly the Capilla Real de Naturales (Real de Naturales Chapel) and the archaeological site, where you can also walk up to the Virgen de los Remedios church and enjoy the panoramic view of the volcanoes.

Mexico City is located two hours northwest of Cholula. There are many tourist attractions in the capital city of the country but, without a doubt, visiting the Historic Downtown is a priority. We recommend visiting the Zócalo, the Cathedral, the National Palace, Bellas Artes and the Alameda. Along the way you will find restaurants where you can taste the most popular dishes.

Now leave the metropolis behind and head to La Marquesa National Park, located just 40 minutes away. Here you can enjoy recreational activities such as climbing, hiking, horseback riding and fishing. Enjoy the wooded landscape and try the traditional quesadillas and mushroom soup, they are delicious!

The Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Metepec is located half an hour west of La Marquesa. Enjoy the view from the Cerro de los Magueyes (Magueyes Hill) and then head down to take a stroll through the streets in the downtown area, admiring the beautiful clay crafts made locally. Do not forget to buy one of the colorful representations of the Tree of Life, the traditional symbol of this town.

The tour concludes at the Estado de México: in Toluca. This industrious city is the highest point in the Mexican highlands and offers you a large number of places to visit, such as: Matlatzincas Park, the cathedral, and Los Portales with its 120 colonial arches.
