Bernal

Renting a safari tour is an alternative way of exploring the Peña de Bernal, the third largest monolith in the world, which is located in the Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Bernal.

The journey happens aboard a dune buggy and begins with a visit to the artisanal workshops located on the foot of the monolith. The master craftsmen specialize in ixtle creations (fiber extracted from the lechuguilla maguey) and clay.

After some shopping, you will visit a cavern that features cave paintings created by the Chichimecas over 1,300 years ago. You'll also find an overlook boasting one of the best views of Bernal and the surrounding towns.

The next stop is the “energy loading zone,” which features a rock with quartz embedded in it and which explains why people believe that the monolith emits positive energy. Lastly, you will visit a spring and an autochthonous cactus garden, where you will be able to enjoy typical fare from Bernal.

The tour lasts about two and a half hours. The terrain renders it suitable for families and children tend to enjoy seeing prehistoric fossils and listening to how the maguey plant is cut in order to extract the ixtle.
