Many travelers to Mexico enjoy a big city adventure in Cancun or Mexico City. For those looking for a quieter, more scenic trip, consider traveling to one of these beautiful small towns in Mexico!
The Points Guy ~ ” Bernal, Queretaro
The village of Bernal sits in the shadow of the towering Peña de Bernal monolith (one of the largest in the world). Hike up to the top for epic views of the village, or stay down below and immerse yourself in the Museo de la Mascara, which showcases both regional and international masks. If you’re feeling peckish, check out the Museum of Mexican Sweets.
Founded in the 17th century, this town is known for its vibrant arts and cultural scene, putting on festivals and events throughout the year. The colorful village is even more charming to walk through when paired with these art exhibits, musical acts, parades and craft fairs that occur frequently. Don’t miss admiring the Palacio Municipal, the brick city hall building adorned with Mexican flags and grandeur.
This charming Aztec village sits at the foot of the El Tepozteco National Park. After a morning hike through the cloud-covered mountains or a visit to the nearby Tepozteco Aztec pyramid, stroll the streets of this village and admire how the sun and shadows of the hills fall upon the colonial buildings. Weekends boost the local food and artisan markets — don’t forget to pick a traditional souvenir, a hand-carved Casita de Pochete. ” ~ The Points Guy
